De Poel Koel- en Vrieshuis recently swapped its customized WMS for a new WMS. They chose for Boltrics’ solution, that gives access to the latest functionalities that are standard available for cold stores.
Since the 1980s, De Poel Koel & Vrieshuis has showed positive developments. After the acquisition by Auke Weening in 2011, this has not changed. At this moment, De Poel is even one of the larger cold stores in the North. To be able to keep up with estimated growth, modernization was required. Where the current customized package no longer met the requirements, De Poel became convinced of Boltrics’ possibilities. In particular, the focus on the future was decisive in this case. Now, the Northern cold store can use a future-proof WMS in the cloud, where the customs warehouse functionality will save a lot of administrative work.

Eyes on the future
De Poel stands for service, quality, hygiene and reliability. Good contact, short lines and flexibility are therefore very important. Due to the increasing need for flexibility, the logistics service provider understands that tailor-made solutions are done at a given moment. Small adjustments cost a lot of time and money. This means that the organization cannot enjoy the latest technologies and thus no longer optimally serve its customers. With Boltrics’ Nekovri Dynamics, De Poel profits from the sector wide knowledge of Boltrics’ customers. This way, the company is always up-to-date and ready to keep up with its customers and clients.
Owner Auke Weening said the following: “De Poel is always focused on the future. In the past, economic growth was the reason we needed to expand with a new cold store. This time it is the technological developments you have to keep up with. Before you know it, it’s too late. Through the industry knowledge of Boltrics and the possibilities for our warehouse, I know that we will be provided with everything we need for the coming period. And if we miss something, we can add it without any troubles.”
