At the end of last year, Lineage Logistics celebrated the successful go-live of their new warehouse management system for their site in Peterborough. This makes Peterborough the first Lineage site in the United Kingdom to be supported by Mercurius IT and Boltrics’ 3PL Dynamics. Because the branch standard is specifically designed for the logistics industry, it will help Lineage Peterborough optimize the efficiency in their processes and increase the service level towards their customers.

Lineage Logistics standardizes WMS for Europe

As the world’s largest cold storage provider, Lineage Logistics recently decided that 3PL Dynamics will be the standard WMS for all its sites in Europe. Following this decision, implementations take place all over Europe via Boltrics’ trusted network of international partners.

‘It is beneficial for us that 3PL Dynamics is internationally implemented by local partners,’ says Peter Bryssinck, Business Integration Manager at Lineage Europe. ‘These partners are really good connected to Boltrics, follow the same philosophy, and know exactly how to set up the WMS.’

As a partner, Mercurius IT successfully implemented this first site in the UK and will foresee all future implementations of Lineage Logistics on that side of the canal.

Functionalities specifically for cold storage

With the new WMS, Lineage Peterborough is set for the future. The always up-to-date solution Boltrics – and therefore Mercurius IT – delivers will make sure their processes are continuously supported by the latest Microsoft Technology, and they can always benefit from the newest functionalities in the branch standard.

Elise Ramsden, Lineage Project Manager: ‘After this successful implementation, we do not only follow the path of Lineage Europe. We can also trust on functionalities from the cold storage industry. Quality checks, expiration dates, classifications. All kinds of fields and functionalities we use in our processes which are very specific for cold storage logistics were already available in the software. Now, we can easily trace all goods in our warehouse and match all of our customer requirements.’

‘On to the next!’

After the successful project with Lineage Logistics Peterborough, Mercurius IT is already preparing the next Lineage-site in the UK for implementation.

‘We are confident in the team who implements our sites in the United Kingdom,’ concludes Peter Bryssinck. ‘The collaboration between Mercurius IT and our own implementation team has proven to be successful and will be a strong foundation for future projects. On to the next, I would say!’
