HighJump Challenge: Market Leaders Control Their Supply Chain Destiny
No Warehouse Management or Distribution Challenge Too Great
In this video series, we look at how companies solved complex supply chain management challenges and turned obstacles into opportunities that produce real results:
- More accurate same-day deliveries
- Quicker return-to-stock for cancelled orders
- Significantly fewer single-line orders through staging and packing stations
- Much more!
Inventory Management Improvements Support Same-Day Delivery
For a furniture retailer like City Furniture, inventory accuracy and customer satisfaction go hand in hand. Without tight inventory control and warehouse management, same-day delivery and in-store pickup couldn’t happen. By customizing their cycle counts and other inventory management processes, the company can prioritize fulfillment based on a customer’s location and keep inventory over 99.9% accurate.
From Order Cancellation to Better Customer Connections
You wouldn’t think that returning a cancelled order to stock creates a business opportunity. But, for foodservice equipment parts distributor Parts Town, it is a defining moment. See how the company mitigates losses, continuously improve supply chain processes and better serve customers.
It’s a New Day Thanks to Same-Day Shipping
Same-day delivery has quickly become the new status quo in the minds of customers. But, executing on this in requires the leanest processes and the tightest systems. Colony Brands took a hard look at its warehouse operations and implemented new processes, including auto waving, to beat the competition with same-day shipping.
Separating Groceries at a Massive Scale
Packing freezer groceries and cupboard items at the checkout counter is simple. But, for an online grocer and eCommerce machine like Thrive Market, ensuring each fresh, froze, and dry order was appropriately packed and shipped to meet customer expectations created operational challenges. By creating a custom SKU for cold packs and a new process to pair the right packaging to the right item according to shipping requirements, the company increased quality, lowered costs and better met delivery windows.
Quality Bike Products:
Taking Staging and Packing Out of the Single-Line-Order Equation
Quality Bike Products (QBP) drop-ships for mom-and-pop shops, but also distributes to thousands of large retailers. To free up resources, the bike parts company wanted to reduce small orders sent to the staging and packing area by 20%. By building new processes, the company surpassed their goal within three months. Watch the video to see what else the company has up its sleeve.
