Client Success Case Study

FORTNA helped Vistar leverage automation to increase efficiency, eliminate redundancy, increase capacity and achieve the scale needed to deliver on service level goals by consolidating retail and e-Commerce fulfilment into two new facilities.

High capacity. High throughput. High performance.

Goods-to-Person (GTP) is where products in a distribution center are brought directly to a worker for picking instead of workers traveling the facility to fulfill orders. GTPs have enormous effects on efficiency as well as worker and job satisfaction.

Goods-to-person solutions are ideal for increasing operational performance without increasing your building footprint. Inventory accuracy and reduced shrinkage make these the ideal solution for high-value inventory. The optimised flow of material and just-in-time replenishment eliminates unnecessary inventory, reducing your total cost. Today’s solutions also work well in chilled or freezer environments and are ideal for a variety of industry segments and applications, such as e-Commerce and omnichannel facilities and parts management.

Proof of concept and business case justification

Complex projects sometimes require a proof of concept (POC) to validate functionality and justify the business case before investing significant capital expense for the broader solution. At FORTNA, the business case is at the heart of everything we do. We will help you develop the business case, align stakeholders and obtain the Board-level support you need for your investments.
