WISE LEADER – ROBERT SPEEDIE
Robert Speedie, Manager, Parts Distribution Centre, and Logistics has been with Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada, Inc. since 2008. Robert was part of a team researching the available supply chain systems on the market and determining the best solution to enhance the automation and systems used to run the distribution center’s operations and the dealer’s ordering systems, including freight management of orders.
The system integration and start-up were of a critical nature, Robert was instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition to WISE and other management tools within the Royal 4 System. For this achievement, Royal 4 is pleased to induct Robert Speedie into the WISE Leaders’ program.
“The Parts Distribution Centre of Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada, Inc. chose Royal 4’s supply chain solution after carefully evaluating other systems in the market. As a tier one auto distributor and parts supplier, our decision was based on many factors; Royal 4’s ability to handle our unique business processes including but not limited to: the way of operating our Distribution Centre, interfacing with all of the Mitsubishi Corporate and Divisional systems, multiple dealer business systems (French and English), Port Authority system, and managing inventory at off site locations were all very critical for Mitsubishi. Royal 4 Systems project managers and go live support team were at our facility before during and after we went live. On the very first day dealer orders were transmitted to and received by the system allowing fulfillment of customer’s orders. Inbound receiving and putting away of containers, picking / packing and shipping orders, and processing dealer returns were also achieved without issue. We fulfilled every order, and did not lose any data, all checks and balances worked as they should. I would highly recommend the WISE WMS solution for any company in the automotive parts distribution industry”.
