Industrial Distribution

Digital Order Fulfilment Requires Distribution Speed and Accuracy

Industrial product companies are challenged to meet their customers’ demands for a wide variety of SKUs to be delivered when and where they are urgently needed. Some of the industry’s biggest challenges include:

  • Demand for same-day or next-day order delivery
  • Increased competition for price-sensitive customers
  • High SKU count with many slower moving products in inventory
  • High return rate
  • Creating a green, sustainable supply chain
Fortna can help transform fulfilment operations to enable flexibility and address digital disruption and growth objectives.
