Oracle Extends Warehouse Management Capabilities
July 5, 2018
help customers reduce logistics costs, optimize inventory levels and
improve customer service, Oracle has extended Oracle Warehouse
Management (WMS) Cloud capabilities. The latest global enhancements
offer heightened inventory visibility through yard management and
integration with Oracle Inventory Management Cloud, as well as improved
extensibility with the addition of new REST Application Programming
Legacy transportation and warehouse management systems are often unable
to provide insight into trailers in the yard, which creates a
significant gap into visibility that can lead to fulfillment delays.
Oracle WMS Cloud yard management capabilities directly address this
challenge, making it easier to locate shipments in trailers in order to
expedite unloading for high priority inventory.
Oracle Integration Service (ICS) based integrations between Oracle WMS
Cloud and Oracle Inventory Management Cloud will enable Oracle
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Cloud customers to rapidly implement source-to-settle and order-to-cash
flows to improve business responsiveness. The addition of REST web
service APIs improves extensibility and enables customers to customize
Oracle WMS Cloud for their specific business and industry needs.
“We were consistently running out of inventory and needed a scalable
solution that would deliver real-time visibility into inventory to grow
our business,” said Eduardo Gonzalez de Boado Halcon, vice president of
Supply Chain at Supermercados Peruanos, “Since implementing Oracle WMS
Cloud, our stock outs have reduced by 80 percent and our market share
has increased by six percent, which equates to a lot of revenue.”
“Today’s eCommerce driven economy has changed customer expectations for
fulfillment, and delays or inconsistencies can significantly impact
customer satisfaction and loyalty,” said Diego Pantoja-Navajas, vice
president, WMS Product Development at Oracle. “The extended capabilities
to Oracle WMS Cloud enable companies to gain greater visibility of
inventory so they can implement more rapidly, reduce costs, optimize
inventory levels and deliver consistent, high-quality customer
The enhancements further strengthen Oracle’s position as the leader in
cloud-based Warehouse Management Systems, and Transportation Management
Systems, delivering end-to-end logistics capabilities including Oracle
Warehouse Management Cloud, Oracle Transportation Management Cloud, and
Oracle Global Trade Management Cloud.

trailers and their contents in the yard. This allows companies to
expedite unloading high priority trailers and shipments needed to

service application programming interfaces. These tailored
functionalities enable personalized timelines to meet specific business
