Combined partnership has helped Hopewell Logistics improve warehouse productivity by nearly 20%
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO and CHICAGO, IL – June 18, 2014 – Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, today announced the release of a video case study focusing on the positive benefits of industry partnership. This video case study was completed jointly with West Monroe Partners, a North American business and technology firm and Hopewell Logistics, a third party logistics provider in Brampton, Canada.
The five-minute video illustrates how Hopewell Logistics has streamlined operations and improved efficiency, by 17 percent, while leveraging the AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL Warehouse Management System (WMS) and West Monroe’s FLEXdls discrete labor management tool.
“Third party logistics providers are under tremendous pressure to continuously lower costs,” said Yves Belanger, Director, West Monroe Partners. “Working with Accellos, we were able to find significant labor savings even in a well-run facility like Hopewell Logistics.”
Hopewell Logistics was established in 1996 to allow manufacturers to outsource their warehousing and distribution and achieve cost savings through shared resources. With state of the art facilities in Brampton and Calgary, Hopewell Logistics is able to offer sophisticated supply chain management services to a long list of blue chip companies.
“We began our relationship with Hopewell Logistics over 20 years ago and have worked side-by-side with them as they have grown their business, added new distribution centers and continued to improve the services they offer their clients,” said Joe Couto, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Accellos. “Our partnership with West Monroe Partners allows us to offer clients a fully integrated warehouse management system and sophisticated engineered standards based labor management tool with real-time dashboard reporting – designed specifically for 3PLs like Hopewell Logistics.”
Accellos and West Monroe Partners launched an official partnership in February 2013 to better serve the 3PL community.
