Situation:
With continued growth and a strong sales forecast, SwimOutlet.com decided it was time to reevaluate its fulfillment operation and location of its distribution center. After an extensive network analysis, SwimOutlet narrowed its search to Southern Ohio.

Solution:
With the facility location finalized, the two teams utilizing AHS’s Forward Motion™ product began the process of analyzing both historical and forecasted sales activity. Throughout the process, AHS and its engineering team developed cost effective solutions using time studies, labor utilization reports, and most models. After a few months of analytical work, the Master Plan was finalized and the two teams went to work implementing Phase 1 of the material handling solution.

Services Provided:

  • Data Analysis
  • Development of Master Plan
  • Facility Design
  • M.H.E. R.F.P. Process
  • AutoCad Layouts
  • Procurement, Installation, and Commissioning of M.H.E.
  • On Going Support
Result:
Shortly after commissioning the system, SwimOutlet began the transition from its current fulfillment center into the new distribution center. While the physical move occurred over several months, the operation team was able to make the transition seamless to their customers. After a few short months of operation, the team was able to process higher volumes with one-third of its previous fulfillment team. With the master plan finalized, SwimOutlet is well positioned to implement future phases supporting their ongoing success.
