Fortna approaches improving distribution operations from a different point of view.
It starts with Business Strategy
Your distribution operations are a focal point for growth and competitive advantage. But it can be hard to know the best levers to pull to create change. We start by partnering with you to understand what’s at stake for your business. Then we help you optimize all the interrelated factors to get to the best answer for your unique operations. And to drive real business results, you’ll need a design that is custom-developed to your strategy, your products and your order profiles, not based on a “template” or on a single company’s technology-centric view of the world.
We know that distribution design decisions will affect the entire company and that you’ll need broad buy-in to ensure a successful implementation. So we involve an expanded set of stakeholders from the beginning – and we engage them throughout the process. We know that it takes a comprehensive approach to design the best solution, but also to get broad alignment and commitment to the strategy.
An integrated approach to deliver the best results
You can hire firms to do your strategy project. And others to do your design/build. But Fortna is not just another consulting firm; we’re implementers. We have designed and built hundreds of world-class distribution operations across the globe. Because we implement what we propose, we have a full set of experts on staff – not just engineers (in disciplines like Mechanical, Electrical, Controls, and Structures) but also consultants (with expertise in Process Engineering, Labor Management, and Data Analysis) and software specialists, procurement specialists, construction experts, and more. And that means our strategies and our designs are better informed, more practical and implementable.
Our unique approach is demonstrated most clearly in our guarantee. When we sign off on a design, we’ll stand behind it with a performance guarantee that the solution will achieve the business results agreed upon. And you can hold us accountable to that promise.
We can do this because of the Fortna DC Design Suite™ services. It helps our engineers analyze enormous amounts of data in great detail, to get to the best answers quickly and consistently.
