RK Logistics Group Selects Industry Leader Deposco for Advanced Warehouse Management, eCommerce Fulfillment Platform
Proven cloud-based software expands RK’s capabilities to support online retailers and eCommerce marketplaces with seamless inventory management, product control, order fulfillment, shipping and visibility
Fremont, Calif. – NOVEMBER 21, 2019 – RK Logistics Group, a leading Silicon Valley provider of logistics, fulfillment and supply chain services, announced it has selected Deposco, a provider of omni-channel warehouse management and order fulfillment software, as its core solution supporting today’s rapidly growing and diverse e-commerce retail shopping markets.
RK chose Alpharetta, Georgia-based Deposco following an extensive vendor evaluation process which examined and vetted over a dozen warehouse management and fulfillment solution providers, noted Kip Shepard, RK’s vice president of operations.
“Deposco’s solution portfolio and scope, support resources and rapid implementation timeline were best of breed and provided an excellent strategic fit for the evolving needs of our customers,” Shepard said. “This will provide a significant upgrade to our technology resources and expands our capabilities to provide a full-service, turnkey fulfillment solution for today’s online retailers and eCommerce marketplaces.”
Shepard also cited Deposco’s deep integration experience and its extensive menu of nearly 100 pre-built “modules” enabling rapid plug-and-play connection with dozens of enterprise resource management, warehousing and order management, eCommerce and retail online ordering platforms. The integrations will allow direct feed of orders from the client’s system into RK’s instance of the Deposco software, from which RK fulfillment specialists will then pull, pack and ship orders, and provide the client with complete inventory and order cycle visibility throughout the process to the end-consumer.
The platform also provides integrated inventory control and processing functionality for managing inbound receipt of goods, deconsolidation and put away of product in the warehouse, inventory tracking, receipt and processing of outbound orders, shipping, and performance reporting.
“We believe this elevates RK Logistics into one of the Bay Area’s most advanced, flexible and responsive providers of logistics and fulfillment services – particularly for businesses that need to rapidly ramp up and scale warehousing and distribution as their eCommerce volumes grow,” Shepard added, noting that as retailers and online marketplaces expand, the need for integrated order management technology and warehouse capacity closer to the end-consumer becomes paramount.
“We’re uniquely positioned in the Bay Area to meet these needs, through our network of nine distribution facilities and over a half-million square feet of warehouse space, our skilled and experienced workforce, and now, our cutting-edge fulfillment technology,” Shepard said. “And the timing could not be better as we approach the peak season of holiday shopping.”
Implementation and deployment are well under way with initial RK customers projected to be live and operating on the system by mid-November.
RK is also an industry leader in designing and deploying optimized transportation management and supply chain solutions. These include special industry-specific programs, such as sequencing parts into lean production lines at automotive and technology equipment factories, and just-in-time (J-I-T) deliveries to construction sites.
In addition, RK Logistics operates the South Bay’s only certified, general purpose Foreign Trade Zone, which allows Silicon Valley manufacturing and importing companies to benefit from various trade policies and practices that can reduce administrative regulatory costs and associated tariffs and duties for imported goods, while protecting the integrity of high-value products in secured environment and improving supply chain velocity.
