Solutions from EXTEND for providers of transportation and logistics.

Solutions for Logistics and Transportation Providers

Logistics and transportation are the front lines of our e-commerce driven world. The promises of e-retailers fall flat without the logistics infrastructure to back them up, which put a huge demand for instant and consistent data not only in the data-center but now the warehouse and fulfillment-center.  Learn how EXTEND is helping empower logistics and fulfillment for customers across the globe.


The Problem

Our client, a third-party logistics and order fulfillment provider in Bristol, UK, decided to implement a new order and inventory management system in one of its warehouses. There was only one issue, none of the wireless infrastructure the new system required was deployed at the fulfillment-center location.

Project Requirements:

• SmartHands • Site Surveys • Wireless Surveys • Network Architecture • Structured Cabling • AP Deployment

The Goal

  • Complete an infrastructure audit to verify compatibility with existing systems and design integration with existing back-office systems.
  • Design the network architecture for the new wireless infrastructure.
  • Deploy APs, cabling, controllers and other wireless infrastructure throughout fulfillment-center.
  • Validate deployment and back-office integrations. 

The Outcome

EXTEND was able to complete this project and deploy the new wireless infrastructure to support the new wireless data-collection devices as part of the new inventory and order management solution implemented by the 3PL operation.  This project went so well for the Bristol warehouse location, our client decided to standardize all of its 14-global locations to this system, which EXTEND completed at each of the additional 13 fulfillment-center locations.
