Industrial Supply Magazine: Error-Free Delivery

March 18, 2021

Distribution One’s Business Analyst, Rusty Compton, is featured in an article from Industrial Supply Magazine on the topic of Warehouse Management Systems.

Article excerpt:

Amazon continues to lead in this space by providing accurate deliveries and zero tolerance for shipping errors. Suppliers need to have proper checks and balances on their warehouse levels to assure accurate movement of product.
