Blue Yonder says its Warehouse Management System (WMS) project has successfully been implemented with the help of nConnect Group for Team Global Express.

The project, completed by Blue Yonder and its APAC partner nConnect Group, will help Australia and New Zealand multi-modal logistics provider Team Global Express in digitally transforming its warehousing capabilities.

Team Global Express in New Zealand (NZ) operates out of 28 branches, offering comprehensive intermodal freight delivery options domestically and internationally and fully integrated logistics services. Team Global Express was previously using multiple solutions across its customer base, with the main solution being homegrown and needed to consolidate to one solution.

With Blue Yonder, Team Global Express Logistics NZ has realised the following benefits:

  • Productivity increase of 15 per cent. 
  • Customer and staff satisfaction rating of 9.8 out of 10. 
  • Positive impact on profitability, ROI, and overall financial performance, including inventory reduction, shortened cycle time, etc. 

“We selected Blue Yonder’s WMS due to its high-quality capabilities, which addressed the business challenge of separating and migrating the client base from existing solutions and consolidating into one strategic foundational solution,” Team Global Express NZ IT program manager Bruce Toetu’u says.  

“The Blue Yonder solution was relatively easy to implement, thanks to the support of nConnect Group. Our latest customer to go live with the solution – a leading supermarket brand in New Zealand – is very happy with our implementation and has seen the difference already. We are on our way to digitally transform our supply chain thanks to this project.”

nConnect Group played a vital role in the implementation, including program planning and configuration, client and carrier integration, deployment, and ongoing application managed services.

“The successful go-live was attributed to the strong project and operational team, as well as the close engagement among our delivery team, Team Global Express, and their leading supermarket brand customer,” nConnect Group general manager of operations and finance Andy Kim says.

To continue its transformation, Team Global Express is implementing Blue Yonder’s Warehouse Labor Management, Third-Party Billing and Yard Management solutions. Future solutions to continue its transformation include Demand Planning, Transportation Management System (TMS) and Supply Chain Management (SCM).

“Blue Yonder is excited to support Team Global Express in their transformation journey. The warehouse is such an important part of the supply chain, so using a modern solution like Blue Yonder’s WMS adds to Team Global Express’ capabilities both internally and what they can offer their customers,” Blue Yonder Australia/ New Zealand vice president Daniel Kohut says.

“The fact that they are already seeing results from this solution is a testament to its value.”
