Driving High-Performance Distribution Operations - FREE White Paper!

July 01, 2013

According to the Gartner, Inc. report, “Supply chain service providers are
combining software, highly skilled employees and enabling technologies to
deliver capabilities that augment existing supply chain organizations.” The
report also states that, “These Cool Vendors illustrate the emerging delivery
models and services in supply chain management.”

Some of the valuable key findings and recommendations from Gartner include:

  • Directors and vice presidents responsible for high-volume distribution operations need to select a service provider that has engineering and project management expertise before redesigning, building or retrofitting warehouse operations.
  • Optimizing the flow of goods through high-velocity retail and manufacturing distribution operations requires expertise spanning warehouse design, material-handling equipment and warehouse control systems. Traditional supply chain consultants don’t have this expertise.

Download the “Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Services, 2013” report along with
FORTE’s WCS 2.0 Smart Warehouse Suite white paper to learn more about how
industry professionals are addressing the increasing pressure of more frequent
and smaller shipments by maximizing automation functionality with real-time
visibility.
