Distribution Operations Implementation Services

Tompkins’ experienced team of project managers and on-site field engineers help clients successfully deploy and start-up greenfield and retrofit Distribution Centers (DCs) and Fulfillment Centers (FCs). We offer DC and FC strategy development, material handling equipment design, and systems integration.

Our implementation approach minimizes your internal labor commitments, reduces your total costs, and reduces “lost-opportunity” costs resulting in differed internal initiatives. We shift the project schedule risks from you to Tompkins, while providing the greatest flexibility to achieve your implementation objectives.

Our proven methodology supports compressing the implementation schedule by as much as 30%, while minimizing the impacts to ongoing critical operations and excess inventory.

The scope of our implementation services include:

  • Schedule management
  • Vendor management
  • Installation services
  • Development of standard operating procedures
  • Associate training and planning
  • Transition planning
  • Configuration
  • Equipment and systems acceptance testing
  • Commissioning
  • Start-up support and post go-live auditing

Our project teams provide the hands-on experience that is so critical to reducing the inherent risk associated with the transition from old to new facility(s) and processes – taking you from start-up through full operations of a new or retrofitted facility.
