to support new venture. “Delta's software seemed less complicated – powerful, but more straightforward and user friendly”
18 July 2008 — Normanton-based SAM Transport & Distribution, an established, 24/7-service company with 126,000 square feet of bonded and non-bonded warehousing and a fleet of modern, maximum weight articulated vehicles has installed the DeltaWMS:Bond warehouse management solution to support its new bonded warehouse venture. SAM's decision follows a comparative assessment of DeltaWMS and other systems. “Delta's Bond solution was up and running in less than a week and cost 60% less than its main competitor” according to SAM. Delta is also believed to be the only company in its field offering fixed-price contracts as standard.
Commenting on SAM's decision to deploy DeltaWMS:Bond, SAM Transport & Distribution Director Marc Ransley adds: “Delta's software seemed less complicated than the other bonded warehouse solutions we assessed – powerful, but more straightforward and user friendly. This was important as we wanted everyone to be able to use the system”.
SAM already consolidates all of Scottish & Newcastle's Export beer under contract, dispatching some 150,000 pallets a year, worldwide, and holds a Customs Movement Guarantee. SAM's first customer for its new, DeltaWMS-driven Bond operation will be a major wine importer, according to the company.
