Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently observed the 5th anniversary of its Europe/Middle East/Africa Distribution Center (EMEA DC), which opened in 2010.
Future Electronics was founded in Montreal in November of 1968 by Robert Miller, President. Today the company is recognized as one of the most respected and innovative companies in the industry.
Future's EMEA Distribution Center is strategically located in Leipzig, Germany, a focal logistics point in Central Europe. Its proximity to the carrier hubs enables same day shipments to be processed quickly and efficiently and allows the company to offer the latest order cut-off times in the industry for next day delivery.
Product is stored in a "dark warehouse": a secure, fenced in, fully automated environment, with automated temperature and humidity controls meeting all the latest industry standards. Components are stored in specifically designed protective totes, one part number per tote. This storage concept dramatically reduces the possibility of mistakes.
Customers benefit from consolidation methods the company has put in place to help reduce transportation costs. Consolidating shipments also has a positive impact on the environment, reducing consumption of packaging materials as well as fuel. This practice goes hand in hand with President Robert Miller's commitment to making the company as environmentally friendly as possible.
A highly sophisticated Warehouse Management System (WMS) controls the movement of the product and tracks it every step of the way. Every transaction is recorded and stored in our archives, from receipt to shipment. The company's state-of-the-art Transportation Management System (TMS) calculates precise transit time to each customer location, assuring that orders ship on the right day in order to meet customer delivery requirements. In addition, the organization's advanced Export Management System validates each Export order to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations.
