AMI taps SkylogistiX for United wine service
A Chicago-based joint team comprised of AMI and SkylogistiX personnel has been working together since July 9 to create a more efficient wine program. As part of this team effort, SkylogistiX is using inventory and planning tool SkyLog to manage wine on United's flights. The goal is that SkylogistiX's intuitive IT interface will enable the airline's warehouse suppliers to plan and forecast with improved accuracy.
“We’ve looked for the best of the best in the industry and have chosen SkylogistiX for its logistics expertise and latest technology,” said Denise Poole from AMI Wines LLC, in an August 29 press release. “Together, we can provide United Airlines with a full-service package that simplifies their wine program from beginning to end.”
Kay Wichmann, Managing Director, and Eric Hutlas, Director Supply Chain Management from SkylogistiX., also commented: “With the combined knowledge of AMI and SkylogistiX, we’re confident that we can provide a smooth and efficient service for United Airlines. We’re looking forward to the collaboration."
