Emydex: Wodonga started new warehouse system

Wodonga started new warehouse system


AUSTRALIA, Victoria. Emydex provided Wodonga with an advanced inventory stock reporting system, providing real-time visibility of stock across the organisation, including reports for 3rd party cold stores, detailing what stocks have been dispatched on their behalf. Wodonga now have automatic stock reconciliations with cold stores, significantly reducing the time taken to track and reconcile external stock.

As part of the inventory management system, Emydex allows Wodonga to view their stock in one unit of measure, such as Kg’s for example, but then to price/sell products in different units of measure such as lbs and pieces (units).

Due to the nature of the company, Wodonga Sales Orders are typically quite large. Emydex provided Wodonga with functionality that enables the company to break down large sales orders into smaller ‘dispatch’ orders that they can track and invoice, while at the same time retaining links to the larger overall sales orders.

Established in 1965, Wodonga Abattoir is a leading export-focused multi-species meat processor, based in Northern Victoria, Australia. Wodonga Abattoir processes approximately 45 mill. t of meat per annum, including 70,000 cattle, 1,200,000 sheep and lambs, 10,000 Bobby Calves and 300,000 goats. Their products are 100% processed for export markets including USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Russia, South Africa, Indonesia, China, Malaysia and Middle Eastern Countries and hold both Halal and Organic Certifications.

As Wodonga are an export focused processor, they needed a system that could operate in foreign currencies, that could be linked to a particular vessel leaving Australia for export markets. Finally, they needed a system that could interface with OzDocs, an Australian export documentation system.

As part of the setup for Wodonga, Emydex configured a new export tab specifically for the meat standard cut codes in Australia, that are used to describe export products. Export data is sent, along with the units and weights, production dates etc. to OzDocs, which is then able to communicate with the regulatory authorities and produce the necessary physical documentation. In Australia, a statutory requirement for exporting goods is the ability to assign port mark stamps to items for export. The system is now configured such that assigning port mark stamps to box labels is a very quick and easy process, fully audited, and allows Wodonga to decide how they are going to assign port marks on each shipment.
