    Client Success Case Study

    Meeting the Challenge of eCom Growth

    A luxury accessories company needed to increase speed-to-market, add capacity for eCom orders, and find synergies across their three separate luxury brands. Fortna simulated more than 100 scenarios to determine the optimal network for the combined businesses.

    When the transformation is complete, they will have added capacity, improved service levels, reduced transportation miles, and expect to save over $7M annually.

    Data-Driven

    Scientifically proven proprietary modelling tools and algorithms allow Fortna to design for maximum efficiency and outcomes.

    Fortna designs solutions with a holistic perspective, considering upstream/downstream impacts on the entire operation and network.
