Project Description

Invata Intralogistics’ distribution center design for snack food manufacturer Old Dutch Foods doubled the throughput of the previous distribution center operation with just half the labor. Old Dutch Foods engaged Invata to modernize its distribution center operations, because of Invata’s expertise in distribution center design route delivery, material handling systems, and ERP software integration.  Invata’s team developed a system that receives product from manufacturing and delivers it directly into waiting trailers in the form of orders, with minimal touches.  As a result, Old Dutch has successfully completed a major distribution center expansion that is helping to make its supply chain leaner and more responsive, all with a lower per unit cost and substantial increases in capacity to accommodate future growth.
