DLA Planning to Implement Cloud-Based Warehouse System

1 min read


The Defense Logistics Agency is piloting a cloud-based warehouse management system in Corpus Christi, Texas, the agency said Thursday.

Officials want to make a transition from the distribution standard system, which uses an old programming language called common business oriented language, into the warehouse management system which will be systems applications and products-based.

The change will consolidate the agency’s operating systems into a single software, resulting in fewer  complexities and streamlined functions. Jeremy Beckwith, deputy commander of DLA Distribution Corpus Christi, said that personnel worked together to assess system requirements and develop an implementation plan.

He added that the warehouse management system has executed daily process audits, handled over 2,500 receipts and issues, cleared transactional errors and managed storage location matters within four months since  June 2018. The agency wants to finish piloting the system by the end of 2019 and make  the system available to all distribution sites by the end of 2021.
