Materials handling equipment rental group Equipment Depot will use a cloud-based Amazon application to help manage its USD22 million parts inventory.

AWS Supply Chain, from Amazon Web Services (AWS), is designed to increase supply chain visibility to make faster informed decisions that mitigate risks and lower costs.

"We have over 50 branches covering 3,000 miles (4,828 kms), plus 850 technicians,” says Joakim Langkaas, director of operations at Equipment Depot.

“The AWS Supply Chain technology will provide machine learning (ML) technology capable of anticipating low parts inventory and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) delays and reallocating parts to multiple branches and service fleets with real-time forecasting."

"AWS Supply Chain automatically combines and analyses data across multiple platforms, finding trends and quickly taking inventory rebalancing actions.”
The system can connect to existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management systems without re-platforming, upfront licensing fees or long-term commitments. 
Carol Tesarek, Director of Customer Experience at Equipment Depot, says: "AWS Supply Chain introduces ML and predictive maintenance capabilities to our supply chain operations.”
