Rotary Transforms Fulfillment Operations To Meet Next-Day Delivery Demands

In the face of rising demand and shipping volumes, the management team at Rotary Corp. recognized that their current fulfillment systems and processes would not be able to meet their customers’ next-day delivery demands. Rather than building from scratch, the company embarked on a seven-month project to reconfigure it’s 250,000 square foot central DC and reengineer it’s fulfillment processes with Lucas.
