Waytek Inc. offers quality electrical wiring products, low prices, and great customer service to their OEM and distribution customers in the industrial, electrical, and wiring harness industries. Waytek maintains an inventory of over 5,000 products and offers same day shipping on most orders. The company ships more than 500 parcels per day via FedEx and UPS to destinations throughout North America and Europe. For over fifteen years, Waytek has relied on iSeries-based shipping software from Varsity Logistics to automate carrier selection, rate shopping, label printing, manifesting, and document production.
When Waytek purchased Varsity’s shipping software in 1989, their shipping needs were relatively simple. One shipping station could handle the company’s entire shipping volume, and all parcels were shipped through a single parcel carrier. As Waytek’s business grew, Varsity kept pace with new functionality that ensured the reliability of Waytek’s shipping processes. Today, Varsity ShipSoft-Parcel supports six shipping stations in the company’s 69,000 square foot distribution center.
“Our first solution from Varsity was a single shipping station with UPS,” recalls Bob Lamoreaux, President of Waytek, Inc. “Since then, we have added Varsity’s FedEx Ground Carrier Compliance Kit, ShipTalk, which allows us to see parcel status from any iSeries station, and SpeedWeigh, which eliminates manual ‘get weight’.”
