New Distribution Facility

DMSI is pleased to announce the opening of our new 400,000-square-foot retail distribution center in Charlotte, North Carolina. This facility will be utilized to support the supply chain of a top 50 retailer. The operation is multi-functional, as cross-dock, with warehousing and storage activities to be directed alongside value-added distribution resources.

The product workflow design utilizes various conveyance and pathways, easily blending store orders in multiple stages of completion. Startup of this project adds to the many successful DMSI achievements of client objectives. Our managers and associates worked in partnership with client teams to define objectives and implement processes. In such a large-scale project there are many challenges and all were met on time and within budget.

Our cross-dock centers keep retailers’ product moving continuously, even in the most demanding circumstances. This valuable capability is achieved by designing facilities for optimal efficiency using repeatable, documented processes. Our retail distribution operations offer state-of-the-art security to match individual client needs, an operation that is vital to maintaining high levels of inventory control for supply chain efficiency.
