Lombard, Ill. (March 2, 2022) — Zethcon Corporation (www.zethcon.com) announces the selection of the company’s flagship software, Synapse WMS, by The Shippers Group, a leading third-party logistics provider. The warehouse management system (WMS) provides the strong out-of-the-box feature set The Shippers Group needs to support growth of their warehousing operations, which span over 5.4 million square feet across 12 locations.
The Shippers Group chose Synapse WMS to support the continued growth of their business in existing categories and to help diversify into e-commerce fulfillment. The platform offers extensive functionality in a highly configurable package to meet the complex and evolving needs of 3PL warehouse operations, with little to no customization.

Synapse WMS is designed for simple set up and easy rollout, both at initial implementation and for 3PLs onboarding new clients. To further streamline data connectivity and end-to-end integration, the Zethcon Managed Integration Services (MIS) division provides a complete solution and speed to market advantage, especially valuable benefits for 3PL providers that depend on software integration with both internal and external customer systems to share data critical to managing orders, inventory and shipping.
“Synapse WMS is really built for customers like The Shippers Group – 3PLs positioned for growth and in need of a robust yet flexible solution to allow them to capitalize on those opportunities,” said Chris Oechsel, CEO, Zethcon. “The system delivers on the security, support and continuous enhancements that these operations need to scale.”
Synapse WMS has regularly scheduled releases of upgraded features and functionalities, based on real-world input from customers.
