MCS picks Datex FootPrint WMS software

Merchants Cold Storage (MCS), a cold storage warehouse and distribution facility in Walton KY, has chosen Datex FootPrint warehouse management system (WMS) software to automate its warehouse operations.

Specializing in food product inventory, MCS selected Datex FootPrint WMS in order to improve efficiency and real-time data visibility by replacing previous processes related to inventory tracking and billing.

Datex FootPrint WMS includes special features and functionality for cold storage and third-party logistics (3PL). This system was developed using Microsoft technology and includes features developed specifically for cold storage warehouse operations. Datex FootPrint WMS includes temperature capture; the ability to restrict inventory to specific temperature zones; catch weight; track and trace inventory by Lot, vat code, SKU, UPC, or ingredient; 3PL billing including the ability to charge accessorial fees from either a handheld or desktop computer; and other features essential for cold storage warehouse operations.

With 7,700,000 cubic feet of warehouse space, MCS offers refrigerated warehouse services for clients in the Cincinnati/northern Kentucky area including cross-docking and consolidation of freight shipments. A computerized refrigeration system ensures dependability and minimal temperature variances throughout the facility and is supported by a backup diesel generator. MCS provides 80 trailer staging locations, 43 dock doors, and a two-car rail siding. Separate coolers and inventory management prevent the co-mingling of meat, poultry, and dairy products.
