High Bay Area
This is a reserved location used for picking items that are out of stock in other locations, and for replenishing stock into the OSR, giving more flexibility to our DC management team to adjust to changing order and inventory conditions.
This area is used to prep and process all freight/bulk orders prior to shipment and consists of a new special staging area for freight orders. Along with automated packaging, these updates significantly cut down the number of manual steps needed to complete freight orders, which have increased steadily as our customer base has grown.
Area that can be used to expand High Bay Area or add more aisles to the OSR to further increase product storage and volumes. When the warehouse was expanded, it was done in such a way to allow for future growth. The warehouse could eventually re-double capacity to hold approximately 800,000 products.
System consists of 5 aisles and 135 shuttles and is designed to hold up to 400,000 SKUs, most of which can be picked, packed and shipped the same day as the order is placed. With the new OSR, picking speed has increased 30% and throughput has doubled. The higher efficiency and increased capacity was crucial to reducing disruptions and delays when Fort Worth was impacted by severe winter weather in February, 2021. Our facility was purpose-built for future expansion to a capacity of up to 800,000 SKUs.
