Across-the-Board Improvement


Challenge: In addition to missing end-of-quarter sales goals, receiving time was 24 to 48 hours and on-time order fulfillment was at just 75% of requirements. Specific challenges included a lack of inventory checks and balances in the put-away and pick process, which resulted in missed and crossed shipments; packages not packed to client specification; poor inventory management; and limited cross training.
