      Client Success Case Study

      Reducing Complexity and Lowering Costs

      A global healthcare company wanted more control over distribution costs and capabilities. Fortna helped this client develop a strategy to simplify their distribution network and bring 3PL work in-house.

      The plan included merging fulfillment for their business units, upgrading systems, and the design-build of three new DCs — all in just three years to address expiring leases.   The Fortna solution has reduced inventory, lowered costs, and expanded capabilities to handle the demands of their growing business.
