Parts giant TVH has selected the Körber K. Motion Warehouse Management System (WMS) and K.Motion Warehouse Control System (WCS) for its warehouse automation.
TVH will upgrade warehouses across five continents and 48 sites, including in North and South America, Western Europe, South Africa, and China.
TVH had begun its warehouse modernisation journey two years prior, kicking off its relationship with strategic partner Accenture to develop a roadmap that enables the company's growth ambitions by streamlining fulfilment operations globally and designing a robust warehouse template in line with the group supply chain strategy. TVH's legacy in-house system had reached its limits.
The business chose Körber's adaptable warehouse solution as the ideal fit to fulfill existing requirements while delivering the agility for future initiatives. As a cloud-based solution, it offers, among other benefits, cyber and data security.
Körber's capability to deliver comprehensive warehouse control software for TVH's highly automated sites from a single provider was its differentiator for the ambitious project.
The scale and complexity of TVH's supply chain modernisation requires a special, multi-faceted partner — designing robust functionality, delivering strategic business insight, and quickly implementing next-generation warehouse processes and strategy. The combination of Accenture's capabilities and experience paired with Körber's supply chain software and cloud expertise exceeds all of TVH's requirements – in line with local needs.
TVH operates from 81 branches across all continents. With a database of over 46 million item numbers, of which more than 930,000 different references are in stock, TVH – as a one-stop shop – supplies to customers from over 180 countries.
