A manufacturing company
The client called with an immediate, time critical warehousing need. They were running out of space in their own facilities and needed FW Warehousing to take delivery of 50 truckloads of their product the very next day. Additional warehouse space would be needed in the days and weeks following to
accommodate substantial production over flow.
FW was able to shift key personnel around and add shifts in order to provide this client with the rapid response implementation required for a painless solution. FW Trucking immediately dispatched trucks to begin picking up the 50 truckloads of product. FW Trucking prioritized the project and allocated additional equipment and drivers as they became available in order to meet the necessary time constraints. The FW Trucking and FW Warehousing teams worked together seamlessly to facilitate the inbounding process as quickly and efficiently as possible. Within 24 hours, FW had turned this customer’s nightmare into a success story.
However, the first 50 truckloads were just the beginning. FW solutions team needed to continue to scale up the storage space for this client to accommodate their production over flow. Over the course of the next eight weeks, the shipments kept coming. When all was said and done, we received an additional 1,100 truckloads and stored more than more than 30,000 pallets of product for this customer. As with the first 50 truckloads, the additional product was quickly and efficiently transported, received and put away into inventory at FW facilities.
FW is able to offer rapid scalability, agility and flexibility in its design and implementation of custom solutions to meet the needs of the customers.
