BY Staff Writer

Atlanta — RedPrairie Corp. announced that Grupo Comercial Control, parent company to Woolworth Mexico and other well-known retail brands, won Mexico’s annual National Award for Logistics for its successful implementation of a WMS integral strategy based on the RedPrairie Warehouse Management solution.

Grupo Comercial Control won the "Company" category and its COO was recognized with the "Executive" category for his lifetime professional accomplishments. Grupo Comercial Control was the first company to be recognized for this award in more than one category.

"We’d like to thank our logistics colleagues, Expologística, ASELDYT and CSCMP for recognizing our visionary spirit and groundbreaking implementation of the RedPrairie Warehouse Management solution," said Grupo Comercial Control’s COO Rodolfo Lopez Cerdán. "This project is a strategic initiative that has positioned us for continued growth and enabled us to better serve our customers across Mexico."

Owned by Grupo Comercial Control, Woolworth Mexico and Tiendas del Sol operate more than 70 retail stores in Mexico. The company leveraged Latin America IT consultancy Netlogistik to deploy RedPrairie Warehouse Management at its Mexico City and Monterrey distribution centers. The solution provides a unified platform that manages all of Woolworth Mexico’s supply chain operations and reduces logistics costs, while increasing efficiencies across receiving, warehousing and impressive 80% crossdock processes.

Guns in the workplace

BY Marianne Wilson

New York City — On June 17, 2011, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a bill into law that will limit an employer’s right to prohibit guns and ammunition in the workplace. While the law does not necessarily allow employees to carry firearms at work, it does allow employees to store and have access to firearms kept in privately owned vehicles parked on or in employer provided parking areas. Given that 461,724 Texas residents hold a concealed handgun license, this law is likely to have a significant impact on the workplace across a broad swath of industries, including retail.
