FROM OUR PARTNERS
Century has been a great partner with Zulily in helping us establish our e-commerce operations in China. In 2015, Zulily had a goal to open a buying office along with a Fulfilment Center in South China and Century was the partner that we chose to help open and run our operations in China. Century has worked closely with our leadership team to help streamline processes and ensure the successful set up of our operation. Century operates the e-commerce Fulfilment Center in China and has achieved a level of operational excellence that is comparable to Zulily’s US fulfilment network, which is quite an accomplishment as it’s best in class. We are proud to be partners with Century working to serve our customers every day.
Century has been an exceptional consolidator, freight forwarder and partner to JOANN for the past 15 years. We have been the beneficiary of countless integrations and system enhancements including VMS® 2.0, which played a key role in maximizing workload efficiency for our Global Logistics Department. JOANN recently implemented a new warehouse management system and the GS-128 scan-able labels have dramatically increased DC efficiency while decreasing receipt errors. Century has partner with us on several ad hoc projects and helped to reduce our first and total cost on key import items. Century continues to find new ways to add value, create efficiency and drive change.
Century’s VMS® provides an integrated comprehensive solution to proactively manage our international vendors, logistics, and shipment details from forecast visibility and PO assignment through to execution, delivery and compliance management. Century’s global footprint has enabled Canadian Tire to launch in new markets in a seamless manner. This global representation also helps keep stakeholders informed and connected by assisting us in overcoming culture, language, distance and time zone difference to enable real-time decisions. By having Century resources on-site and integrate with Canadian Tire’s Supply Chain workspace, Century continues to demonstrate their commitment to collaboration and understanding their customer’s culture. As a strategic partner for almost 20 years, we applaud Century’s strive to focus on continuous improvement of operational efficiencies, and increased responsiveness in resolving our dynamic retail demands.
