RedPrairie has announced its warehouse management system has gone live in Cabot Creamery Cooperative’s 60,000sqft distribution center in Montpelier, Vermont.
A cheese maker, Cabot uses RedPrairie’s system to help ship an average of 450,000 pounds of cheese each day. The system is currently running in Cabot’s distribution center and two production sites, helping to track and trace product from the point it is manufactured to when it is shipped from the warehouse.
RedPrairie said that its warehouse management system (WMS) capabilities including product rotation; freshness, date and lot controls; catch weight; and variable aging ensure that companies with a serious commitment to quality can raise the bar in overall supply chain processes.
Ralph Viscomi, senior vice president of information services at Cabot, said: We originally chose RedPrairie for the company’s expertise in the food and beverage industry, as well as for its command of cutting edge technology. Cabot is very sensitive to our customers’ demands, so we needed a solution that was flexible and capable of adapting on a moment’s notice. RedPrairie met that challenge easily and effectively.
