The main Phoenix, Arizona area-based Ewing distribution center (DC) serves branch store operations in 200 convenient locations across the country. The company ships 1,800-2,000 cartons a day on average, operating one shift five d ays per week.
Unlike many industries where products are packed and shipped in uniform-sized boxes, the Ewing product line comprises everything from wheelbarrows and 50-pound bags of fertilizer to 20-foot-long sections of PVC pipe and small drip emitters – making the order fulfillment process a complex proposition. Couple that with the issue that if an order arrives late or is incorrect, it isn’t just an inconvenience to branches, themselves; the contractors — Ewing’s key customers — will lose money, because they still have to pay their people.
