ARD Logistics is a provider of Supply Chain Management services to Mercedes Benz USA & large Tier 1 suppliers.

The Challenge
ARD had a requirement to deliver parts to a Major Luxury Auto manufacturer. This had to be done Just-In-Time (JIT) and Just-in-Sequence (JIS) with Very Narrow Aisle Storage (VNA) and utilizing an Automated Storage Retrieval System (ASRS). ARD needed a fully integrated warehouse management system that could meet all these specific requirements and optimize the loading of Specialized Delivery/Transportation by our fleet of box trucks.

Utilizing Royal 4 Systems decades of functional expertise and the rapid configuration tools within WISE, enabled the implementation of custom features to satisfy every requirement. WISE manages Inbound, Value Added Services, Outbound, ASRS integration, and the Sequencing for JIT deliveries. This included load planning, delivery scheduling, and EDI ASN confirmations. Royal 4 Systems has been instrumental in improving productivity and lowering the costs of operations at ARD. When asked about the WISE implementation and Royal 4, in general, Robbie Wicks Plant Manager said; “ With our ability to meet the changing needs of our clients, we have a distinct business advantage. Royal 4 gave us this capability and is always there for us.”


ARD Logistics companies now have a single solution providing a lower cost of operation to manage their entire business from the back office, EDI, ASRS integration, Just in time delivery and real time visibility to every aspect of the operation. When asked about the WISE implementation and Royal 4 in general Robbie Wicks Plant Manager said; “ With our ability meet the changing needs of our client, we have a distinct business advantage.
