Kinaxia Logistics has selected JDA Software, Inc. to support its warehouse operations with several solutions from the JDA Warehouse Management portfolio.

Made up of nine companies, Kinaxia Logistics operates 630 vehicles, has 1,100 members of staff and owns 925,000 square feet of warehouse space.

In June 2018, Kinaxia decided to open a new warehouse located at Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) near Rugby, Northamptonshire.

The 116,000 square foot building, which has capacity for 24,000 pallets, is set to become Kinaxia’s flagship warehouse and provides them with a central location to serve their network of customers across the UK and support its ambitious plans for growth.

Kinaxia recognised the need to implement a highly configurable warehouse management system (WMS) that would offer advanced features and functionality that will ultimately transform their business.

In just seven weeks, Kinaxia has already gone live with its warehouse deployment, which speaks to JDA’s ease of use and simplicity to deploy.

JDA sales and service alliance partner Socius24 has served as Kinaxia’s partner to implement and develop all technical aspects of Kinaxia’s deployment, providing professional services and support throughout the duration of this project.


“Kinaxia Logistics is dedicated to delivering world-class service to its customers,” said Johan Reventberg, president, EMEA, JDA.

“We had an aggressive timeline to deploy the JDA solutions and based on tight collaboration with JDA’s partner Socius24 and Kinaxia, our team completed the implementation and deployment, and we look forward to continuing to support their efforts moving forward.”

JDA Dispatcher WMS and JDA Third-Party Billing, from the JDA Warehouse Management solutions portfolio, gives Kinaxia a distinct advantage to maximise labour utilisation, reduce obsolescence and leverage available capacities.

“Kinaxia Logistics identified the need for a world class WMS and billing solution,” said Sarah Ranshaw, general manager, group warehousing, Kinaxia Logistics. “We selected JDA and their trusted partner Socius24 to implement it in line with our rapid project timescales.”
