Howard Turner Quoted in MHI Solutions

1.09.2018

St. Onge Company's Howard Turner was recently quoted in an article for MHI Solutions Magazine concerning "pop-up" distribution centers. These distribution centers are a growing trend for servicing temporary increased demand, such as a holiday or sporting event. One of the challenges of pop-up distribution is enabling the right technology to network pop-up DCs to a main warehouse management system. This way, a remote pop-up location will know to fulfill orders in its region instead of the main distribution center.

There are key software systems that companies should have in place to support pop-up locations, [Turner] says. Companies that can "pull this off" will have a robust warehouse management system, one that can be quickly configured to support an offsite location and track inventory at these pop-up locations.
