Commonwealth Announces New Webinar: “Six Ways to Postpone - or Eliminate - Your Distribution Center Expansion”

September 4, 2018

Boston, MA

Webinar helps attendees explore ways to extend the life of an existing distribution center in the midst of growth

 

 Webinar: “Six Ways to Postpone - or Eliminate - Your Distribution Center Expansion” Commonwealth Supply Chain Advisors will present a live webinar, “Six Ways to Postpone – or Eliminate – Your Distribution Center Expansion” on September 20th, 2018. The premise for the webinar is that growing companies with space constraints in their distribution centers face a host of financially undesirable choices: expand the current facility, move to a larger warehouse or lease “overflow” space. One common factor that all of these alternatives possess is that they almost always drive up ongoing operational expenses. However, there is often an alternative.

 

In this event, Ian Hobkirk, Commonwealth’s President and industry thought leader will help attendees explore space utilization strategies that have the potential to delay or eliminate the need to expand. The webinar will cover six space-saving concepts that have been used by companies in a variety of industries, with success. Attendees will learn about:

 

• Techniques, equipment and technologies that can help companies regain unused space
• The benefits, costs and risks associated with each of the options presented
• How to objectively evaluate which solutions are the right fit

 

The webinar, “Six Ways to Postpone – or Eliminate – Your Distribution Center Expansion” will be held at 12:00 Noon EDT on September 20th, 2018. Click here to register.
