Kaniklides, a major wholesaler and retailer of office supplies in Cyprus, chose Mantis’ Logistics Vision Suite to run their new Distribution Center

Kaniklides was established in 1959 as a bookstore in Nicosia. In the following years, the company grew and expanded in other sectors such as paper and envelopes. Throughout the years, the company continued to expand and house a number of well-known brands. The company today covers the whole island with quality products managing to become one of the market leaders. With almost 50 years of experience in the field the company offers a customer-friendly approach and support to its customers.

Kaniklides established “Partners In Logistics“, a new enterprise that will be operating as a Logistics Services Provider (LSP) running their new DC and serving among else the entire supply chain of the group.

The new distribution center will be operational in September 2008 and is one of the first in Cyprus designed for the “Self-Support” technology, with a total area of 3,000 sq.m. and 6,000 pallet locations. The new distribution center will be operated by Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) and will be optimized in speed and space utilization.

Kaniklides needed to optimize daily operations without risking quality and therefore needed a logistics solution that would offer such characteristics.

The company selected Logistics Vision Suite for the optimization of its daily operation. Also, for the first time in the island of Cyprus, the Pick by Voice module of Mantis (powered by Vocollect) was implemented.

Kaniklides utilized its new state-of-the-art Distribution Center to offer premium logistics services in Cyprus at competitive prices and with unrivalled customer service. One known customer of the company is East Pack USA.
