Challenge: A fast-growing marketer of storage solutions for crafting accessories was faced with a dilemma. Its logistics partner decided to close a warehouse and the company was told it had to move out in 30 days. Weber Logistics was chosen to manage a rapid and seamless transition to a new distribution center.
Solution: In two weeks, Weber integrated systems, set up operating procedures, transferred data to its WMS, set up data mapping to retail customers, moved all inventory to its Ontario, CA DC, assumed responsibility of container drayage and began processing orders. The move was managed by Weber’s cross-functional transition and integration team.
Results: Distribution from Weber’s DC was established in two weeks with zero disruption of order flow to major retail customers. Additionally, Weber’s ability to integrate drayage and distribution services allowed the customer to consolidate service providers, saving time and money.
