[photopress:Logistics_highjump.jpg,full,alignright]Some indications of how sophisticated the logistics business in China is becoming:
Hongxun Logistics, a third party logistics (3PL) provider based in Beijing, had just selected HighJump to implement a WMS, a warehouse management system. Hongxun manages more than 30 warehouses in China, offering logistics services to mobile communications manufacturers in China, including some of the best-known names in the cell phone business. Simon Sun, Hongxun’s logistics manager said Hongxun is implementing the WMS along with wireless communications and RF-based bar code scanning to capture and communicate tracking and tracing information, to manage warehouse operations, and to manage the transfer of goods between warehouses. The system will be up and running in 2008.
National Retail Systems along with a Chinese partner is launching SinoNRS to build and operate highly-automated western-style distribution centers to do value-added services and direct-to-store delivery from China to retail stores in the United States.
In August Catalyst said that it planned to market WMS systems in China after noticing high volumes of Chinese traffic on its website. A few weeks later, Catalyst was acquired by CDC Software, a subsidiary of CDC Corporation, a Chinese-owned provider of enterprise software solutions.
