Cardinal Health relies on WMS solution
Cardinal Health examined its entire warehouse structure at the company’s more than 40 North American medical distribution centers and made the decision to deploy WITRON’s latest generation of the warehouse management system to further improve performance of its supply chain.
Customer: Cardinal Health, Inc.
Cardinal Health, Inc. is a service provider that improves cost-efficiency in healthcare, ranking as the 19th largest company in the world, according to a ranking by U.S. Fortune magazine. As the business behind healthcare, Cardinal Health helps pharmacies, hospitals, and ambulatory care facilities focus on patient care while reducing costs, improving efficiency and quality, and increasing profitability. Furthermore, Cardinal is deeply committed to maintaining customer relationships throughout the supply chain. These customer relationships begin with suppliers, extend to the hospital warehouse, and other care areas across the healthcare supply chain. The company is organized in two sectors with many complementary and intersecting capabilities: the pharmaceutical and medical sector.

Special features of the project
WITRON has assisted Cardinal Health for many years with the operation of 40 manual and 4 fully automated warehouses and distribution centers. Some distribution centers work with the previous version of the WMS, while the others are using the WITRON tote picking solution “OPS” (Order Picking System). The objective is to match Cardinal Health’s specific requirements with the company’s unique customer structure and to provide the best possible logistics solution.
Other key benefits of the WMS software are the flexibility of the software design, the stability of the software during project realization, and its ability to adapt to future logistical challenges and legal requirements. With the new WMS software, WITRON provides a customized service layer that acts as a standard interface to the new SAP ECC that Cardinal Health has implemented.
Customer opinion
“After a nine-month evaluation phase, we decided to optimize our distribution centers with the new WITRON WMS, because we were confident that this system can help us realize great benefits at optimal hardware and software costs.
