Online Retailer Ramps Up Holiday Shipping, Gains 99.9% Order Accuracy

Challenge: Our client, a thriving online retailer, was growing 25% to 30% every year since 1999. Sales are busiest during autumn, when roughly 200,000 of its annual volume of 225,000 orders are handled in a four-month period. During this time, operations ramp up from 100 to 8,000 orders a day. The company had completely outgrown its systems and needed a solution that could be scaled to meet peaks in sales activity.

Solution: ADSI configured a fulfillment solution to streamline and accelerate the process. The company now has 20 pack/ship stations where orders are packed and shipped by staff using barcode scanners to guide their work. Shipments are auto-processed according business rules embedded in our multi-carrier shipping system. Manual procedures have been eliminated.

Results: Our client has gained a 99.9% accuracy rate on a volume of 60 orders/hour per station. They can also handle customer changes right up to the point of shipment.
