According to Bart, the implementation of the automation is a good example of the collaboration. “The project involved CASA, Centric, and the supplier of the automation solution all working together. Since the latter party was new to us, we asked Centric to take the lead. We hoped that Centric, with its knowledge of our organisation and processes, would be a good sparring partner, both for us and for the other partner. Centric exceeded our expectations, showing that not only do they do what we ask of them, but also proactively consider our current and future needs.
“In the coming years, the focus will be on expanding our e-commerce activities,” says Bart. “We have already taken these ambitions into account when designing the new distribution centre. Locus WMS offers a lot of functionality for e-commerce, and it will play a central role in our expansion in this area.”
CASA is currently in discussions with Centric on how to put this ambition into action. “With their ability to truly grasp our organisation, I anticipate that Centric will again be an ideal sparring partner.”
