AMCO Group Third Party Logistics Case Study

Implementation of THINK 3PL Warehouse Management System

Amco Group Services

AMCO Group is a provider of a wide range of logistics services to several different industry sectors including automotive supply (OEM and aftermarket), aerospace, FMCG, and defence. This diversification brings many challenges, not least of which is finding a 3PL Warehouse Management System that is powerful and flexible enough to provide the different solutions required to the challenges of each industry, but at the same time remaining affordable to AMCO in the very competitive environment that they operate in.

Following extensive research and having considered solutions offered by a number of our competitors AMCO Group chose THINK Warehouse Management System.

At THINK we understand the Third-Party Logistics (3PL) market and the requirement for seamless integration with your customer’s systems, whilst maintaining the core competencies and efficiencies of a class-leading 3PL Warehouse Management System (WMS). In addition to our standard WMS software, we have supported AMCO in their rapid expansion in the development of several bespoke solutions in support of their customer’s requirements in aerospace, automotive part sequencing and the management of a worldwide supply chain of bulk shipments from the far east of individually numbered components that require full tracking during the inbound, store, pick and despatch process.

When a new supplier to a famous luxury carmaker approached AMCO for a sequencing solution, THINK were able to create the WMS and operational concepts that proved decisive in the contract to be awarded to AMCO. THINK consultants’ extensive knowledge with 1st tier automotive manufacturers and in particular Just-In Sequence (JIS) environments put them in great stead to secure this sequencing project. THINK developers created a fully configurable sequencing module that can be used for multiple product types and fit points at both planning and fixed sequencing levels. Handheld barcode scanners can perform the crucial validation of picked product and stillage slot position to help ensure the supply chain is maintained. THINK can also be configured to automatically print product labels, stillage manifests and delivery documentation, in addition to management reports to monitor demand vs stock levels.

AMCO were pursuing a contract to supply a sequencing solution to a German owned luxury carmaker in the UK. They had been contacted by a German supplier of interior trim parts who required a UK based warehouse to store and supply components in final production sequence. AMCO immediately contacted THINK for support in developing a concept to present to the 1st tier and OEM. THINK have more than 20 year’s experience in Automotive sequencing solutions, from design through to implementation. We worked with AMCO, supporting meetings with the 1st tier and OEM and, once the contract was awarded to AMCO. THINK were instrumental in the project management and on time delivery of the solution.
