Anyone can offer services. Fortna drives results. Here are some examples of our work:
A major shoe retailer was serving over 1,000 stores with an omni-channel volume of over 40 million units annually. They hired Fortna to help them increase their storage capacity, throughput, service and speed. The project included expanding their distribution center, automating manual processes, upgrading existing automation and implementing FortnaWES™, a powerful warehouse execution system to synchronize the entire facility. Picking productivity increased 40%. Storage capacity increased 200% allowing them to keep 60% more inventory in active pick. Retail throughput increased 60% and eCommerce throughput increased 200%. They now cross-dock almost 20% of receipts. In addition, the aging building was transformed into an “Employer of Choice” facility to reflect the high value they place on their employees.
A popular footwear company’s 21% growth was maxing out their distribution capacity resulting in service slowdowns and concerns about future growth. Fortna assisted them with several projects including a cross-dock project, retrofit of their existing DC, a new greenfield DC, flow path analysis, and software implementations. The new DC project alone more than doubled the number of orders that could be processed and decreased labor costs by 43%.
