NewCo Log is a Luxembourg-based logistics service provider, offering a fuss-free model for online retailers and businesses looking to outsource their logistics and transport operations. NewCo Log has teamed up with Up Trace for pallet marking and labelling at its warehouse. Here, we look at a partnership that’s going places.
NewCo Log, based in Luxembourg, is a subsidiary of Landewyck Group. The company offers made-to-measure logistics services, including storage, distribution, secure transport, inventory management (via WMS), picking, packing, tracking, and customs formalities. NewCo Log’s extensive services, coupled with its prime location at the heart of Europe, have made it the partner of choice for many businesses in Luxembourg and beyond.
Flawless labelling for a logistics firm
As any self-respecting logistics expert knows, reliable equipment and efficient after-sales care are absolutely vital. NewCo Log understands those imperatives more than most. Suppliers have to meet the same high standards of customer service at all times. “We were looking for a flawless labelling solution,” explains Thomas Chalant, General Manager of NewCo Log. “Up Trace had exactly what we were looking for, and they proved capable of sticking to our strict time limits. I have nothing but praise for their standard of service.”
Valuable storage space advice
In late 2013, NewCo Log had to alter a 16.5 metre high storage rack fitted with two stacker cranes, replacing them with a pair of three-directional turret trucks. At around the same time, the firm was also deploying a warehouse management system at its premises. Employees were so busy working on the warehouse and configuring the WMS that they completely overlooked another equally important aspect. “In the heat of the moment, we almost forgot that a WMS only works if every location and pallet is labelled,” recalls Chalant. “Fortunately, Up Trace came to the rescue in record time, advising us about different printing techniques and the types of printers and labels we’d need to use. We were ready to open our first warehouse just a few weeks later.”
NewCo Log’s business has gone from strength to strength since then. And the firm is still benefiting from Up Trace’s support and guidance – on everything from location labelling, bar codes, and pallet and box label printing and sticking machines, to picking trucks equipped with high-tech Zebra printers.
