Home Improvement Company Saves $100M+ with New Multi-Channel Distribution Program

Challenge: Our Team first worked onsite with a Fortune 50 Home Improvement company. The Program team decided to convert Import (IDC) and Carton (CDC) Distribution Centers into combined Rapid and Stocking (RDC and SDC's) Distribution Centers converting 10 DC's over the course of 6 months.

Solution: Rollout of further RDC's included pointed information on space analysis, material handling layout, staffing analysis, space impact, training material, communication templates, reporting requirements, critical path task list.

Results: The Multi-Channel Distribution Program that our team and our client developed and executed resulted in a greater than $100M in annual savings. The Program savings breakdown from tactical savings was as follows ($20 M): $5MM from Market Realignment (Transportation), $10MM from combined domestic and import market service (Transportation), $5MM in fixed costs for closing 4 DC's within the year, $50-90MM in recovered Vendor Direct Compliance charges which now was serviced through the MDC agile capability Business Impact.
