Technology strategy assessment

After we conduct a warehouse operations assessment, FORTNA evaluates and identifies specific technologies to support digital capabilities, reduce dependence on labor and ensure business continuity. We start with a holistic review of your warehouse technologies and capabilities. We then leverage data science and broad experience across a wide array of suppliers to recommend best-fit technologies that achieve your operational and business goals and are financially supported with a solid business case.

Proprietary tools like FORTNA DC modeler® quickly provide meaningful insights from your data so you get the fastest time to result, optimizing your facility for higher productivity and capacity.

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.
