How Maersk enhanced a golf apparel brand's logistics with innovative solutions to streamline operations and cut costs.

The customer - Striving to stay ahead of the competition

In the fiercely competitive landscape of the sportswear industry, where agility and efficiency are paramount, companies like Abacus continually strive to stay ahead. As a prominent player in the golf apparel industry, Abacus recognised the importance of optimising its supply chain operations to maintain a competitive edge. In this pursuit, Abacus embarked on a transformative journey to revolutionise its warehouse management and streamline core business processes.

The problem - Hazards of the game for Abacus

The existing warehouse system faced disruptions and delays, hindering the seamless flow of inventory. Moreover, the digital infrastructure lacked the necessary optimisation for customs processes, resulting in inefficiencies and increased operational costs.

Recognising the need for a strategic overhaul, Abacus sought a solution that would eliminate bottlenecks in handling and enhance inventory capacity, all while ensuring compliance with stringent customs regulations.

The solution - Optimised operations and inventory management

Maersk stepped in with a bonded warehouse solution tailored to Abacus' needs. The solution automatically handled both cleared and uncleared goods, optimising the use of the customs warehouse so that it always chooses the correct customs procedure. Additionally, it eliminated stops in inventory management.

Implemented as a Software as a Service (SaaS), the solution seamlessly integrated with Abacus' operations, minimising disruption and simplifying compliance with government requirements.
