Tranzone implements advanced warehousing management solution from Infor
Infor, a provider of industry-specific cloud applications, announced that SNS an Infor global partner and a provider of consultancies and solutions for supply chain management, has successfully managed a deployment of Infor SCE Warehouse Management System at Tranzone Pharmaceutical warehouse in Jebel Ali, Dubai. Tranzone is a subsidiary of Banaja Holdings operating a state-of-the-art 3PL warehouse in Jebel Ali Free Zone. Tranzone has partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies around the world.
Offering a one-stop approach to its customers, Tranzone services include warehousing storage, inventory management, as well as purchasing and re-invoicing to distributors, all at one state-of-the-art location. Considering the requirements to handle and monitor more than 10,000 pallets within three different storage areas depending on item categories, as well as the ability to manage the complexity of pharmaceutical fulfilment, the need for a best-of-breed WMS solution became a must. In addition to implementing the Infor SCE solution, SNS consultants worked on reengineering the warehouse operational flows with the objective of streamlining the inbound and outbound activities.
With the new upgraded solution Tranzone can run advanced put-away processes, mixing Euro and Standard pallets in fixed width locations across the entire facility. The Infor SCE Warehouse Management System allows Tranzone to track its stocks at various levels including production dates, expiry dates, countries of origin, and batch numbers, from receiving to shipping. All transactions and data are captured in the warehouse using wireless handheld devices enabling fast processing and minimum data entry errors. The 3PL billing module was implemented and configured with complex billing contracts to calculate storage rates based on pallet count, location utilisation, as well as various handling charges.
“Infor SCE has many new features that will help us increase our operational efficiency, increase our teams’ productivity and provide more visibility to our management on the operations,” said Mohammed Malek, Head of IT at Tranzone. “It was a great step forward for Tranzone to upgrade its Warehouse Management System to Infor SCE. This advanced technology will be an advantage for Tranzone in order to maintain its place at the top in providing high quality 3PL services for healthcare in the region.”
“Implementing the Infor SCE solution for pharmaceutical products knowing the direct impact on people’s well-being is a challenge by itself” said Simon Kosseifi, Senior Manager at SNS. “I take the opportunity to thank both Tranzone and SNS teams for their professionalism and hard work”.

Banaja Holdings plays an integral role in assessing and controlling international associations and investments across the MENA region, and together with Banaja represents a wide range of multinational, pharmaceutical and healthcare companies.
