The Japanese information and communications technology equipment provider Fujitsu announced January 29 it had teamed up with IT services company YE Digital to provide distribution center-related services in Japan in order to address labor shortages as well as supply chain sustainability issues.

Under the deal, Fujitsu will provide Japanese businesses with its warehouse management system (WMS) services while YE Digital will offer its MMLogiStation warehouse automation tool to Japanese logistics companies.

Fujitsu said that the introduction of these services to the Japanese market will improve the efficiency of on-site operations while cutting down on the waiting time for transportation vehicles, which will minimize driver shortages in the country.

“By combining the respective strengths of each company, including distribution center-related services, automation technologies such as robots, and business expertise, Fujitsu and YE Digital will design a distribution center that provides a bird’s-eye view of the entire supply chain to solve the multi-layered challenges faced by customers in the logistics business based on Fujitsu’s WMS services and YE Digital’s WES solution,” reads a statement from Fujitsu.
