Third-party logistics provider ODW Logistics is opening a 200,000 sq-ft high-technology logistics center near Columbus, OH ready for multiple e-commerce shippers.
The location—along Interstate 71 in Grove City—provides a strategic hub that is within a 10-hr drive to nearly 50% of the U.S. population and one-third of Canada.
It is set up for zone pick and pass with high and low velocity zones and has Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) dense racking and storage. A Tier1 warehouse management system (WMS) is used throughout the building.
The facility is equipped with technology that includes barcode scanning, manifesting software, static and in-motion scales, dimensioning, label print and apply, and sortation capabilities.
ODW is also installing integrated technology that can be customized for each shipper. The first user is a rapidly growing company that ships thousands of fast-moving personal products every day. Among the features provided by ODW is an A-Frame conveyor system that will process up to 3,000 orders/hr.
“We are focused on delivering innovative supply chain solutions to middle market and growth-focused customers,” says ODW Executive Vice President Jeff Clark. “This facility brings a scalable, out-of-the-box e-comm fulfillment to companies that serve key U.S. and Canadian markets.”
