Anyone can offer services. Fortna drives results. Here are some examples of our work:
A well-known apparel company was struggling to manage their intense peak season where they receive 80% of their orders, hire over 3,500 seasonal workers, and ship nearly 1 million packages a week. In addition, growth of the business meant they were reaching distribution capacity and they needed to get orders to customers more quickly. Fortna helped them with a major distribution transformation which included a retrofit to their eCommerce DC so they could merge two facilities into one. The results included an 80% reduction in order processing time, a 50% increase in order volume, and a 39% increase in productivity.
An apparel company had to quickly increase their processing capacity when a new contract doubled their orders overnight. They also wanted to cut cost and improve service. The retrofit to their operation included upgrading storage media, implementing dynamic pick cells, adding a value-added services area, adding a shipping sorter, and implementing FortnaWES™ to synchronize the entire operation. Now, orders that used to take days to be fulfilled are out the door in hours. Operations expenses have decreased by 30%. And with the new capacity, they reached their full return on investment in just 18 months – six months sooner than the business case called for. Equally important, the complex changes were made without impacting current operations.
A children’s apparel retailer needed to support its quickly growing eCommerce channel, as well as multiple brands, and a peak volume of more than 1.5 million units per day. Fortna helped them design and build a 1 million square foot distribution center to support 500% growth in eCommerce and significant store growth while reducing operating costs by 15%.
