Delta's other plant warehouses in Greensburg, Ind., and Chickasha, Okla., will continue to support the new distribution center by shipping regionally. The Jackson facility will allow for transit to 75% of all major markets within 24 hours, according to Rob Skavroneck, director of logistics.
Forte Industries, a Distribution Operations Improvement™ firm in Cincinnati, served as Delta's strategic partner for the design and implementation of the automated material handling systems in the new CDC. Forte also helped select and implement a warehouse management system, PkMS Software Suite, developed by Manhattan Associates.
