In an Operational Audit of this 220,000 sq. ft. distribution center, Distribution Design identified that the use of the existing sortation system was far below the sorter’s capability. The 51-page audit report provided specific recommendations for improving how waves are planned, how sorter lanes are utilized, and many other recommendations for improving productivity, slotting, accuracy, and space utilization. Since the audit, the client has doubled their cycle count accuracy, increased their slotting effectiveness by 45%, and reduced headcount by 22%. Longer term recommendations outline a plan for even better performance. The client’s return on investment for the consulting fees for the Operational Audit will be about 10,000%.
