Some of the enhancements of the new facility include the following:
- Improved technology and combined space that will reduce order processing times and increase order fulfillment rates.
- Combined inbound and packaging operations in one distribution center, resulting in better product availability.
- Increased efficiencies and cost savings from one, centralized warehouse and distribution center in the Midwest.
- Greater customer shipping options, particularly given the facility’s proximity to a UPS hub.
