The Distribution Roundtable is scheduling a tour on September 18, 2014 of the distribution center of the Oriental Trading Company, Inc., the nation’s largest direct retailer of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, toys, novelties, and school supplies. This state-of-the-art facility underwent a massive automated warehouse renovation, which included adding voice picking technology, sortation and conveyor systems, a warehouse control system, and 250,000 square foot fulfillment area featuring a three-level mezzanine. Members of the Distribution Roundtable and interested parties will learn how this highly automated facility increased productivity to better manage more than 30,000 SKUs and handle on a daily basis over 400,000 items to meet customer service level agreements.
