A California distribution center stores and ships products for four different companies all owned by the same parent firm. It is like a private 3rd party logistics provider, and all four operations use the same order management system. The parent firm retained Distribution Design to conduct an Operational Audit and Facility Longevity Analysis. The key recommendations of the Audit Report were for improving space utilization, real time information processing, and swapping some older equipment for equipment better suited for certain tasks. The Facility Longevity Analysis considered the growth expected for the next three years, and it determined the facility’s peak capacity and throughput needs to support the four businesses. It also provided a view of the staffing requirements to support the growth.
