Japan’s NTN Streamlines Operations Across All 52 Warehouses and Plants with Infor

Infor Japan K.K., the Japanese subsidiary of Infor, recently announced that NTN Corp., a manufacturer and seller of bearings, driveshafts and precision equipment, has rolled out its Infor WMS warehouse management system. Per the press release, NTN will use Infor WMS as its supply chain execution solution to combine warehouse management, labor management, transportation management and third-party logistics (3PL) billing management into a single integrated and rational business process for the entire supply chain. Additionally, NTN adopted three Infor WMS modules for inbound, outbound, and logistics cost management at 52 sites across Japan including 17 regular warehouses, 3 automated warehouses and 32 plant shipping facilities. Simultaneous operation of all 52 sites was a prerequisite for the project because a range of departments would need to access all warehouses at the same time. The successful rollout was able to avoid initial concerns that adopting the new system would cause confusion in the workplace, leading to delays in receiving and shipping at the warehouses and issues with inventory accuracy. Anticipated results were achieved, including the standardization of warehouse operations and finished product shipping processes, management of logistics costs, and connection between logistics costs and receiving/shipping transactions.
