Merit Logistics: A Key Partner in Successful WMS System Rollout at Illinois-Based Distribution Center

At Merit Logistics, we take pride in our ability to support our partners in the retail industry. Recently, we had the opportunity to collaborate with a client on the rollout of their new WMS (warehouse management system). This was an exciting challenge, as the implementation was the first of its kind for any of their distribution centers nationwide. We are proud to have been the go-to partner for this project and to have supported the huge transition and changes that came with it.

The Illinois-Based Distribution Center served as the pilot division for the rollout of their new WMS. This meant that every aspect of operations would be affected since the system was entirely new. Merit Logistics was asked to support the transition with multiple departments and tasks. We were able to successfully complete the following:

-Travel selection team support
-Loading stores
-Unloading salvage trailers
-Yard Jockeying
-Hanging signage throughout the warehouse
-Extra sanitation tasks
-Labeling of slots and racking
-Building mobile laptop stations
-Hanging conduit throughout the warehouse

All these efforts required extensive preparation and careful attention throughout the transition process. Over the last six months, we’ve had to adapt to the changing environment at the Illinois-Based Distribution Center, but our team was more than willing to help at every step of the way.

During our annual meeting, our client praised us with compliments, crediting us as the “Swiss Army Knife” of the warehouse for the various tasks we accomplished.

But at Merit Logistics, our most significant reward is knowing that the support we provided has helped make their operations run smoother and increased productivity in the long run. Our team members deserve special recognition for their hard work, dedication, and their ability to adapt to different situations.

We are honored to be a trusted partner in the retail industry, and we remain committed to delivering superior services to our partners. At Merit Logistics, our unwavering commitment to fulfilling our partner’s needs sets us apart. We look forward to more collaborative initiatives like this and offer our experience for future WMS rollouts.
