Distribution solutions for aftermarket parts


Rapid digitization requires supply chain efficiency

Parts suppliers must balance distribution costs and resources to manage high inventory levels and a rapid shift to e-Commerce order fulfillment with more expensive single-unit shipments. Some of the industry’s biggest challenges include: 

  • eCommerce order fulfillment speed and accuracy 
  • SKU proliferation fueled by advancing technologies
  • Slow moving parts inventory for older vehicles
  • Increased competition for price-sensitive customers
  • Global product sourcing and supply chain
FORTNA can help transform fulfillment operations to enable flexibility and address digital disruption and growth objectives.

Client Success Case Study

Fisher Auto Parts: Consolidating network for greater efficiency and flexibility

Fisher Auto Parts’ growth through acquisitions led to a mixture of owned and leased distribution facilities that were running out of capacity and constraining future growth. FORTNA helped them consolidate their network for greater efficiency, and design and build a new multi-banner DC where they merged fulfillment for their different brands. 

Their new DC has increased capacity that allows them to make more opportunistic purchases, added flexibility to meet customer needs and has reduced their overall footprint. 


Scientifically proven proprietary modeling tools and algorithms allow FORTNA to design for maximum efficiency and outcomes.

Holistic Approach

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