DALLAS -- November 27, 2000 -- Adidas Korea has selected EXEs EXceed warehouse management system (WMS) fulfillment solution for a new 13,000 square meter facility in Duckpyong, Korea.

The facility will be used to distribute the entire Adidas product range throughout Korea, including distribution to all Adidas retail outlets. More than 30,000 stock keeping units (SKUs) will be controlled and 5,000 boxes per day will go through this facility supporting 360 franchise shops.

"We have just completed the construction of our state-of-the-art warehouse and needed a solid warehouse solution to support the volume of materials that pass through the facility," said Kevin Seo, warehouse manager, Adidas Korea. "After many months of evaluation, we have concluded EXE's EXceed solution is the best supply chain execution system available to meet our requirements. Exceed Fulfill's functionality is very impressive."
