With over 300,000 square feet of high bay storage WH2L is one of the leading providers of high quality third party storage in the Yorkshire area.
With general storage, decanting of containers, pick pack and assembly WH2L covers all aspects of a sophisticated warehouse operation.
Initially the WITS system was a small business model but has grown to match the throughput and operational complexity of a large warehouse management operation.
To control the warehouse operation WH2L use a 10 user server based WITS system together with the WITS RTP real time radio data interface and the WITS DTP data capture terminal interface.
A sophisticated pick scheduling system handles all customer requests for shipments and produces picking information for transmission to both narrow aisle trucks and vehicle loading trucks. All Goods Out product is scanned both from aisle locations as well as scanned onto the vehicle. This ensures total pallet tracking and eliminates incorrect pallet / incorrect load problems.
All customers have the ability to access their current stock levels together with Goods In / Goods Out transactions via the WITS Data Bureau. Customers can also request timed emails containing stock and status reports including stock split between customer divisions.
Gary Wagstaff Managing Director of WH2L explains "We have used WITS Warehouse Systems for over ten years and each time we have moved the operation to larger premises or operated over split sites the systems have expanded seamlessly to supply all our operational requirements".
Both onsite and online system support is supplied from the WITS premises in Leeds.
The integrated WITS system is supplied to WH2L on a rental basic so avoiding high up front costs.
As Jason Ward Warehouse Manager explains "It would be impossible to track and report on the massive throughput of this warehouse without the WITS Warehouse Management System".
