Entrepreneur challenge

With a growing company, the owners were first looking for ways to make operational efficiency gains. After reaching an efficiency plateau, the business needed to overhaul its warehouse processes and workflow in order to increase shipping output, reduce turnaround time and better compete.

BDC expertise

BDC initially assessed value-added activities and causes of waste, identified potential efficiency gains and established priority projects. Our experts then helped the company with a comprehensive warehouse optimization project that focused on ensuring an efficient layout and redesigning processes across the value chain.
