CEVA Logistics, a global supply chain management company, has announced the launch of its new global MATRIX WMS (Warehouse Management System) which will be the standard service offering for its customers looking for WMS support in warehouses and distribution centers.

Utilizing RedPrairie’s WMS application, the new MATRIX WMS offering, which is part of its suite of IT solutions, will become CEVA’s global offering, providing a standard system landscape and one common infrastructure for customers, while allowing for local flexibility as demanded.  The solution will enable CEVA to monitor the flow of goods, provide transport optimization, warehouse management and stock control for customers.  This common framework will also allow other applications within the MATRIX suite to be integrated to provide an enhanced service and efficiencies of cost and scale for customers.
