Stera Chemicals, one of the largest importers and distributors of raw materials for the chemical industry in Romania, recently implemented the WMS solution for warehouse management from Senior Software. The new system helped the company to automate repetitive activities in the warehouse and reduce the time required for preparing orders.
With a turnover of almost 14 million euro in 2015, Stera Chemicals provides distribution of raw materials for the chemical industry in Romania. During 17 years of activity, the company has continuously developed and, in 2015 they recorded an 18% increase in turnover compared to 2014. Moreover, the business managers estimate an 80% increase this year.
Recently, Stera Chemicals implemented the WMS Solution from Senior Software, a system capable of effectively managing the warehouse’s activities and resources. The constant business evolution prompted the company to look for a new development opportunity, and soon, Stera Chemicals plans to create the largest chemical logistics center in Romania. The center will have storage tanks, automated production processes, transfer and storage of raw materials and other goods, and the distribution will be done in Romania and Eastern Europe.
We decided to implement the WMS solution because we have an ambitious plan. Basically, we want to become a hub for Eastern Europe from which to supply raw materials for the chemical industry, and without the Senior Software solutions, we cannot achieve this plan. When we have thousands of pallets and many operations each day, it’s impossible to continue without a WMS to help us.
said Mr. Alecsandru Rasidescu, Managing Director at Stera Chemicals.
Before using the WMS solution, Stera Chemicals’ employees had to manually perform several activities including label preparation and printing, product search and order preparation, or managing merchandise lots and packaging stocks. After implementing the WMS solution from Senior Software, all these processes are performed automatically, drastically reducing working time and the number of office operators.
Moreover, the WMS system manages all delivery details, executes the labels with specific icons for goods, automatically generates the picking list, ensures high visibility on the activities, offers suggestions for positioning goods in the warehouse, automatically performs full or partial inventories and many other activities that help Stera Chemicals innovate and prepare for the chemical logistics center’ opening and to achieve its estimated growth of 80% in business.
