Increased sales and aggressive acquisitions intensified the need to implement a new system versus continuing to make enhancements to the existing setup.
To continue providing superior customer service, Hillman needed to implement a state-of-the-art Warehouse Management System (WMS).
The solution needed to enable client orders to be fulfilled from both the existing and new facilities simultaneously.
A team of design experts provided a solution to match the forecasted growth for the next 5 to 7 years.
Working in conjunction with other trades, the facility expansion was completed, the internal materials handling equipment system was implemented, and a WMS was designed and successfully brought online.
Result: A modernized distribution facility that supports Hillman's plans for continued growth.
Increased average lines-per-person/per hour 61% by implementing pick-to-light technology and a state-of-the art WMS.
