Founded in 1996, M&S Logistics are a global logistics provider of bulk liquid transport specialising in the use of ISO intermodal tank containers. With a fleet of 8,000, cargo can be efficiently and safely shipped. Their international network enables them to provide localised knowledge and a personalised service to all of their customers at the highest of standards.
The growing services and logistics company works with a number of world-class chemical companies, specialising in transporting mostly hazardous chemicals.
With a reputation for quality, M&S Logistics continue to invest in their operations strategy in order to consistently meet the demands of their rapidly growing customer base. As part of their operational review, they decided they needed to choose a new ERP system to consolidate the entirety of their businesses information into one, core platform.
Louwrens Verwey, Finance Director at M&S Logistics comments on the key reason for seeking a new system, “our system was not fit for purpose and needed to be modernised.” As such, the logistic provider explored a number of ERP solutions and providers, but chose to partner with Sapphire and their SAP Business One product offering. “From the five systems reviewed, SAP Business One provided a solid platform for what we needed - together with being a well known player in the industry,” Louwrens continued.
SAP Business One gives businesses the agility to make decisions faster as all core business functions – accounting, finance, inventory, sales, CRM and project management - are streamlined into one central system. Its open architecture enables third party solutions to easily integrate, providing the ultimate flexibility.
Together with SAP Business One, M&S Logistic opted for Sapphire’s own enterprise-class cloud hosting service, Sapphire Anywhere – providing them a fully managed end-to-end service. Now there’s no more system maintenance, a reduction in IT overheads and greater reliability from a secure platform.
