Hisense, one of the largest global consumer electronics brand, distributes its products in the market directly. To fulfill the demand for its products reliably, Hisense needed a logistics partner who could store and manage their inventory, provide value added services and deliver their products across the UAE to various key & power retailers in a timely fashion.
Hisense approached Jumbo Logistics seeking a comprehensive logistics and warehousing management system. They wanted a complete end to end logistics solution for their inventory planning for efficient and agile distribution in the market. Hisense’s distribution network presented a unique challenge and they required a partner who addressed these challenges.
Hisense also required a complete Warehouse Management System (WMS) that provided 100% traceability and was able to track inbound and outbound movements of its inventory.
