Anyone can offer services. Fortna drives results. Here are some examples of our work:
A leading industrial distributor was experiencing exponential growth. As the volume of orders increased, so did costs and inefficiencies as they leased additional facilities to keep up with demand. Fortna helped redesign their entire order fulfillment operation so they could bring it all into one facility, improving and optimizing flow, reducing operating expenses, and improving inventory management. Not only can they handle their increased order volume, they have capacity to accommodate 30% additional growth.
A wholesale distributor was unable to expand into new markets because their current order volume already exceeded their capacity to fill orders. They also needed to speed up order fulfillment to remain competitive. Fortna helped them develop a business case for investment, then design and implement a second distribution center, resulting in a 20% increase in productivity and additional capacity for future growth. Their customers can now get next-day delivery on orders and the company can better manage inventory, including shifting volume from one DC to the other as needed, minimizing risk.
An industrial distributor needed to increase distribution capacity to continue to deliver the high levels of service its customers had come to expect, including some of the latest order cut-off times in the industry. Fortna worked with them to redesign multiple fulfillment operations. Order cycle time was cut 75%, productivity improved 62% and it was the biggest cost-cutting initiative in company history.
