22/10/2019
Tradelink, a leading provider of e-commerce services for Hong Kong business community, is delighted to announce that it was recognized as a Notable Vendor in Gartner's Asia/Pacific Context: 'Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems' research paper (the research) published in August 2019.

According to Gartner, Warehouse Management System (WMS) offerings, amid the mature market, continue to differ in areas like usability, adaptability, intelligence, scalability up and down market, life-cycle costs and ability to support end-to-end logistics process orchestration.

Focusing on the Asia/Pacific region, the research identifies a growing demand for WMS offerings due to factors such as rapid growth in consumer demand and wages, as well as varying legal, cultural and compliance requirements. While in areas of high population and constrained space like Hong Kong and Singapore, there are a large number of multilevel distribution center operations which require very sophisticated conveyor, accelerating the use of automated material handling system. The research is useful for supply chain leaders to gain insight into the Asia/Pacific WMS market and vendors that currently support it.

"Tradelink has customers all based in Hong Kong and mainland China, some with very complex and large-scale warehouse environments (Level 3 to 5) but Tradelink also offers a template for a simple Level 1 warehouse to support a basic store environment," as Gartner named Tradelink a Notable vendor in the research. "Tradelink often acts as the lead vendor for design, build and implementation. As well as core WMS and some extended components, Tradelink notably includes a module for bonded warehouse operations that incorporates billing and supports China's new standardized customs systems."

"It is the first time Tradelink featured in the esteemed Gartner Magic Quadrant. We believe this recognition from Gartner validates our hard work in building and providing best-in-class digital warehousing solutions," said Emily Chung, Executive Director & Chief Operations Officer of Tradelink. "To help businesses keep pace with the trend of digital transformation driven by industry 4.0, while the arrival of industry 5.0 is not far away, we will continue to put ourselves at the forefront of developing new capabilities in WMS and other areas in the supply chain to meet current and future industry needs."
