A reliable and efficient warehouse is a huge asset for any company. Since 1995, Logimax has been providing a robust, reliable, and affordable solution to help overcome the challenges in warehouse management. “Logimax’s browser-based warehouse management software (WMS) solution helps businesses reduce operating costs and increase efficiency while remaining extremely user-friendly and easy to implement,” explains Sean Sullivan, Business Unit Manager, Logimax. Explicitly designed to manage a 3PL warehouse operation, Logimax has recently been extended to support single-tenant warehouse operations within Distributors and Manufacturers. Logimax WMS also seamlessly integrates with existing systems like enterprise resource planning (ERP), internet shopping cart solutions, and installed on-premise or in the cloud.
Logimax WMS is built on an IBM platform that is highly scalable, with the ability to support an unlimited number of users and warehouse locations on a single instance of the database. “The IBM platform is also one of the most secure environments with a proven reputation for exceptional business resiliency, which is essential to maintain 24/7 warehouse operations,” adds Paul Gray, Vice President Sales, Logimax. In 2020, ransomware, the leading cause of malware attacks, caused many disruptions on Windows-based environments, any impact on the IBM operating systems were rare if not non-existent. Logimax caters to an extensive array of industries such as consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, automotive, and chemicals, frozen foods, perishable products, to name a few.
“Designed to enable companies to increase productivity and efficiency right out-of-the-box, Logimax WMS solution’s core modules include complete inventory control, integrated RF data collection, business intelligence tools, and a client self-service portal,” says Tom Carlisle, Product Development Manager, Logimax.

The software provides for easy configuration of receipts, transfers, counts. Logimax WMS includes a built-in drag-and-drop report designer to print, fax, or e-mail pre-defined reports.
Logimax is part of the FOG Software Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software, Inc. (TSX: CSU), an international provider of software and services to multiple industries. As part of the Constellation Software umbrella, Logimax provides a complementary portfolio of software features that standalone WMS solutions are unable to offer. This includes Varsity Logistics, a multi-carrier transportation management solution that supports a wide variety of shipping needs, and Frontier, an ERP application, which helps manage every point in the supply chain, internal manufacturing, and financial processes.
Illustrating Logimax’s capabilities, a client needed a WMS for their fulfillment center to accommodate a significant increase in the volume of shipments during the 2020 holiday season. Logimax empowered the client to increase their shipments by 32 percent while remaining at 80 percent of staff capacity. This client also broke their own individual one day shipping volume record twice in the first week of deploying Logimax and they also benefitted from visibility to metrics, insights and key performance indicators generated by Logimax, such as the number of order picks completed per hour per employee.
In another example of the power of Logimax, in 2020, a 3PL operation went live within 30 days, even with the Logimax team working remotely with the client due to the pandemic.
Recently Logimax released a new version (3.0) of its WMS solution and, moving forward, the company intends to keep introducing new capabilities, features, and functionalities to help customers increase operational efficiency and profitability. Logimax continues to provide a scalable, reliable, and flexible WMS solution to help clients solve the challenges of warehousing and distributing their products.
