A comprehensive warehouse management solution has successfully been rolled out at the spare parts warehouses in Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Tanzania and Uganda, boosting productivity, improving visibility and automating all warehouse operations
The warehouse mobility solution was deployed with the help of Enterprise Consultancy Services to manage Mantrac’s increasing operations and extensive spare parts inventory. The system is fully integrated with the ERP system so all activities within the warehouse - be it inbound, outbound or stock take - are digitalised and fully automated.
Before the introduction of the system, Mantrac relied heavily on manual operation and paper-based processes. Now, it has a much more efficient way of carrying out warehouse transactions on multiple platforms thanks to barcode and mobile scanning technology. Data processing is faster, which means productivity is higher and therefore, response time is quicker. In addition, visibility has increased, tracking has improved and analytics and reports are more detailed, helping the company to make decisions much faster and much more easily.
Mantrac understand that getting the right parts, service and support fast is essential to keeping Caterpillar machines and generators up and running to achieve maximum uptime and productivity for the customer.
The same solution will be implemented at the rest of Mantrac warehouses in Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Djibouti, Russia and Liberia into 2022.
In addition to the improved logistic process, Mantrac and Caterpillar provide an online parts catalogue access for easy-ordering and better customer experience. Visit: https://parts.cat.com/unatrac
