On-site warehouse reduces order fulfillment time to 30 minutes
For many years, Agility operated a vendor-managed warehouse for a Hungarian global contract manufacturer of PCs and servers for major technology firms. Four to six 24-ton transit trucks made daily deliveries from a central warehouse in Budapest to the manufacturer’s base 80 kilometers away. The warehouse has a 24/7 crew, yet still needed overtime and extra shifts to load the mixed-cargo onto the trucks. Delayed loadings and traffic slow-downs plagued the operation. Agility and our customer jointly invested in an on-site warehouse and stationed the Agility support team there. Now Agility can fulfill scheduled orders within three hours and urgent orders within only 30 minutes.
