As he surveys the logistics environment in 2024, Howard Turner, director, supply chain systems at St. Onge Company, says that this may be the year that more companies ditch their legacy SCM solutions in favor of more modern options. Specific to warehouse management, Turner has worked with multiple different companies in the last 12 months that are planning to upgrade their WMS systems—many of which were implemented 20+ years ago.

Turner says upgrade cycles like this one happen every so often, and that the industry is “at the top of the cycle” right now. “A lot of companies are at the point where they’re looking to upgrade their ERPs, WMS and other business systems,” he says. Because companies are generally leery of upgrading or replacing major SCM applications at the same time, they pick warehousing first.

“It basically comes down to a ‘what comes first’ decision for companies,” Turner explains. “And what we’ve found is, for companies where their warehouse service is their core offering—think of a 3PL—it just makes sense to address WMS first.” For other non-3PL companies, he adds, it often makes more sense to replace an aging ERP first and then either use a new WMS that comes built into that ERP, or add a new warehouse system that can be integrated with the enterprise system.
