PENSERSC POSITIONS FOR ANOTHER LEAP AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION
Regional leader relies on Logimax’ market leading expertise and proven reliability
Jacksonville, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE) — ICS, Inc. today announced that PenserSC has implemented its Logimax warehouse management system. Logimax will help PenserSC gain full supply chain control and visibility by fully automating 3rd party warehousing operations and integrating warehousing with their transportation management and accounting systems.
PenserSC is one of the southeast region’s leading logistics companies providing broad customer services across dry and refrigerated warehousing and transportation, as well as knowledgeable consultation for customized services, storage and distribution. They serve the pharmaceutical, food, industrial, retail, health and beauty and paper industries.
Despite the current economy, PenserSC’s key challenges are growth – both organically and through acquisition – and increasing operational efficiencies to handle that growth.
“We needed advanced automation and fully integrated systems to meet our customers unique needs, provide full visibility and control across all services and increase overall operational efficiency,” said Shawn Barnett, CEO, PenserSC.
“I feel we are the fastest growing logistics company in the region,” Barnett said. “We have doubled our business in the last two years and expect to continue to increase logistics capacity.”
“That level of growth requires key investments in experienced staff and the right technology,” he added. “On a daily basis our people use their expertise to solve our customer’ challenges and help reduce their operational costs. The PenserSC team needs reliable systems to execute successfully or we’ve failed that customer.”
“We’ve chosen to invest in best-of-breed solutions for our warehousing and trucking operations requiring that both integrate with our accounting system,” Barnett said. “We selected Logimax for our mission-critical warehouse management system based on robust functionality, configurability, integration capabilities and the knowledge and experience of the team behind the software.”
PenserSC realized immediate improvements with Logimax. “We have been able to handle many customers’ unique requirements, improve their visibility and improve their supply chain operations,” Barnett said. “For our largest food customer, using Logimax allowed us to capture new inventory characteristics and data that no other 3PL had ever been able to provide for them. That is true competitive advantage and value.”
“We’ve also experienced immediate value in streamlined warehouse processes, greatly decreased manual processing and increased accuracy,” he noted.
“We are very excited to partner with PenserSC,” said Adrian Thomas, President, ICS. “They are an ideal customer for us in that their vision and understanding of the use of today’s technology fully supports their business objective of being the best 3PL provider in their market.”
