A water solutions manufacturer leading across commercial, municipal, and industrial markets decided to undergo a network optimization in order to support the company’s growth. After in-sourcing their order fulfillment and distribution functions, the manufacturer decided to establish a 3PL partnership with Sunland Logistics Solutions to help support their growing business units to ensure quality, customer service levels, and control costs.
The two distribution centers the manufacturer had been managing were combined into a 125,000 SF operation located in Sunland’s 730,000 SF fulfillment center in Simpsonville, SC to centralize inventory and multiple value-added services, (i.e. quality testing and kitting). The operation is a part of the manufacturer’s network supporting 5 of their service centers in addition to major retailers such as Amazon & Home Depot.
