Anyone can offer services. Fortna drives results. Here are some examples of our work:
A billion dollar electronics distributor was struggling to keep pace with growth and needed to increase efficiency, speed up order fulfillment, and add VAS capabilities for bagging, kitting and labeling. Fortna helped them to consolidate three facilities into one highly-automated and efficient distribution center – finding the optimal balance between efficiency while not overspending on technology. The new DC is over a half a million square feet with room for future expansion. The new “continuous order flow” process means orders that used to take four or more hours to be processed, can be filled in less than 30 minutes. Also, order volume increased by 50% and overall productivity improved 39%.
A multi-billion dollar mobility provider’s distribution facility was at capacity, and customer service levels declining. They needed to increase the number of orders that could be processed and increase order accuracy. They especially needed help managing the surge in seasonal orders. Fortna worked with them to improve the operations in the existing facility, and then design and implement a new distribution center to support future growth. The new 600,000 sq. ft. facility leverages smart cart technologies to improve order accuracy. The automated design enables a 6x holiday volume spike through flexible processes and simple ways to boost capacity when needed.
