Client Business Need
With customer demands rising, Marinco was under pressure to improve overall productivity by upgrading warehouse and distribution processes, and maximizing value-added activities in picking, packing, and shipping orders.
Manex helped Marinco implement advanced warehouse and distribution processes using Lean industry standard practices. The entire organization was trained on 5S methods, with these practices instituted company wide. Processes were streamlined in the warehouse and distribution center, resulting in reduced cycle time, improved customer response time, and enhanced order management (packed and shipped in the same day).
