Freight handling company Velta International has picked the Access Delta warehouse performance system with web-based customer communications, online order input and tracking to support its rapid expansion into storage and distribution. Velta’s decision to implement Access Delta followed a marketwide review of WMS solutions. Velta is now using the system to manage its co-storage, bonded and non-bonded, 40,000 square feet, 1,500 pallet warehouse for existing and new customers, interfacing with Velta’s existing bond system.
"Access Delta met our need for a good 3PL system that was also able to differentiate between bonded and non-bonded goods" says Velta International operations manager Neil Cottrell. "Access demonstrated a good knowledge of our business, and their software was user friendly".
"Our largest customer to date, a footwear specialist has a mixture of imported bonded and UK non-bonded product," Neil Cottrell adds. "The main benefit of a bonded warehouse of course is that you can defer payment of duty and VAT until such time as the goods are released from storage – an attractive business proposition".
"Our expansion in this area has been very recent and very rapid" Neil Cottrell concludes. "The Access Delta system has kept pace and continues to do so".
Access Delta claims the largest percentage of 3PL clients of any WMS technology supplier. The company was recently acquired by Access Group, a leading UK business solutions provider, and has become a division of the Group under a new ‘Access Delta’ brand. The acquisition enhances Access’ ability to offer an integrated and smart business-wide solution that monitors and optimises the performance of supply chain operations.
The Access Delta 3PL system is a best-in-class warehouse management solution designed specifically for complex 3PL, multiple customer operations, from order to dispatch. Control parameters allow the user to configure and customise the system for each contract customer, with customer-by-customer stock accounting, custom labelling, inventory management and online reporting.
The distinctive Access Delta graphical warehouse map enables accurate, real-time inventory management, while Delta’s KPI technology can be used to manage warehouse and wider supply chain performance. The Delta family of warehouse performance solutions can be easily integrated with any ERP or other system. Access Delta systems have been developed for all types of warehouse operation including bonded, distribution, third party and manufacturing.
Access Delta deploys its solutions throughout the UK and continental Europe: clients include Eddie Stobart, Foulger Transport, Life Fitness, Toyota Tsusho, Edexcel, Condor Ferries, Palletways and The Royal British Legion.
