          New Highly Automated DC to Support Explosive eCom Growth

          SportChek was experiencing explosive eCom growth that the existing DC was not designed to support, hindering the ability to service customers efficiently. They used ship-from-store to fill orders, but that drove up fulfillment costs. They partnered with Fortna to consolidate all their banners into a new highly automated DC that leverages goods-to-person technology and decrease fulfillment costs.

          Fortna helped design every step of the way and they've even built for our future.
