The Challenge

A leading supplier of children's books to school libraries and other institutions had outstanding sales growth in recent years. Its distribution center's capabilities could not efficiently support new sales levels. Product storage, order fulfillment, special processing, sales, accounting, and management activities were scattered among several facilities.

Productivity rates were falling as the workforce had to be increased in response to new demand, causing operating costs to outpace real growth.

The Solution

Form a Design/Build partnership with an experienced material handling and storage integrator.

The Siggins team first reviewed current operations, and assisted this book distributor in selecting a site to consolidate business activities under one roof. Siggins then completely designed and implemented the new material handling system, achieving the customer's goal of becoming more competitive by increasing worker productivity, order accuracy, and customer satisfaction.
