ECS grows thanks to automation

It’s impossible to drive for long on Belgium’s motorways without seeing an ECS container. The company is a familiar name in the logistics sector in Western Europe, with a fleet of more than 500 trucks and 6,000 containers. As well as transporting containers from the European mainland to Ireland and the UK, ECS also provides warehousing services in Zeebrugge.

Faster order processing

Automating its logistics ordering processes has given ECS unlimited scalability in terms of administration, and enabled it to speed up all its processes, from initial order to final invoicing, for both customers and suppliers. ECS has been able to grow over the years thanks to these investments.

Cnext also automated the administrative processes. The existing Microsoft BizTalk environment is set up as a platform for accelerating the integration of the new supply chain planning software with ECS’s and its customers’ and suppliers’ ERP systems. It’s also important to give new customers and suppliers access to the EDI platform as fast as possible.
