How to successfully complete the process of developing a retrofit/expansion or new facility project that’s aligned with overarching supply chain goals.

When your distribution center reaches or exceeds design capacity, it is time for action, a thoughtful, positive response so the goals of your business are achieved and the expectations of your customers are satisfied.

Should you: retrofit and/or expand in your current location; build new in an existing facility; embark on a greenfield project; or maybe engage the services of a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, at least temporarily?

While having more business than you can effectively handle is a good problem, it is, nonetheless, a problem - one that needs to be addressed, with a clear sense of immediacy.
