Tuesday, 03 November 2020 As a leading manufacturer of car care products, safe storage and transportation of hazardous substances play a key role at SONAX. SONAX, a leading manufacturer of car cleaning products, opts for PROLAG®World to manage its storage and production facilities. CIM’s warehouse management system is set to manage SONAX’s brand new logistics centre in Oberhausen, Upper Bavaria. At the heart of the WMS implementation is PROLAG®World’s safe and reliable functionality for hazardous goods and materials management. “As manufacturers of chemical products and pioneers in car care, safe storage and transportation of hazardous substances are key concerns for us”, explains Benjamin Pajaziti from SONAX. The company decided on PROLAG®World for a number of reasons: Access rights management, threshold value definitions, storage compatibility guidelines, a hazardous materials master and special hazmat strategies are just some of the functions the system provides for transparent, safe and compliant storage of hazardous goods and substances.PROLAG®World also ensures compliance with all national and international transport regulations – whether by road or rail (ADR), air (IATA) or sea (IMDG). The correct transport documents and all other legally required shipping papers are created and printed by the software. It also checks for compliance with quantity restrictions, according to the 1000 points rule, and limited quantity provisions based on the means and mode of transport.“The fact that hazardous goods and materials management was an integral part of the warehouse management system was important to us”, says Benjamin Pajaziti. This makes for a homogenous IT landscape providing stable and efficient communication without an additional interface.Not only do storage and transportation become safer, but so does the overall technical infrastructure.What's more, SONAX is now optimally positioned for the future: Additional logistics centres can be connected to PROLAG®World any time. And there are numerous add-ons available as part of the standard system. This means that the software is fully scalable without disrupting everyday workflows and highly flexible, with a host of customisation options.
