APL Logistics has launched an online sales channel for Wal-Mart in Mexico.
The new solution, which comprises a warehouse management system, integrates with the retailer’s new online shopping site and enables same-day order fulfillment and next-day delivery.
Through the partnership, APL Logistics provides all order management, planning and fulfillment for Wal-Mart’s general merchandise category. APL Logistics also set up a fulfillment center with more than 116,000 square feet of space. Using APL Logistics’ eFulfillment warehouse management system that was integrated with Wal-Mart’s online store, eight types of order and delivery electronic data interchange status updates were enabled.
“APL Logistics is delighted to support Wal-Mart in expanding and consolidating its leading e-commerce position in Mexico,” said David Frentzel, APL Logistics’ vice president for global contract logistics, in a written statement.
