Staples Revamps Fulfillment Center Network

Staples announces it has improved processes across its combined fulfillment center network.

"In terms of integrating our fulfillment center network we're now testing our first warehouse in North America that will fill orders from both legacy Corporate Express and Staples customers," says Ron Sargent, Chairman and CEO.

Sargent continues, "More broadly, our supply chain strategy is to take the best of both worlds by combining some of Corporate Express key capabilities like outbound transportation and route optimization tools with some of Staples existing capabilities like warehouse management and replenishment systems."

Staples also will continue to consolidate its warehouse network across Europe. "In the third quarter we consolidated our warehouse operating in Italy and we're on track to complete three more warehouse projects during the fourth quarter," adds Sargent. "By year end we will have close 10 such facilities since the acquisition."
