World’s Largest Marine Electronics Manufacturer Implements Cadence WMS
To meet the demands of aggressive growth and product-launch schedule, Navico required real-time warehouse and shipping systems for fulfilling orders to distribution, retail and consumer markets.
Navico, a specialist electronics company serving recreation and commercial boating markets with brands that assist in navigation and fish-finding, has selected and implemented Cadre Technologies’ Cadence Warehouse Management System. The system operates at Navico’s manufacturing and distribution facility in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico for shipments through San Diego to its global distribution network, retailers and consumers.
