COLUMBUS, OHIO – ODW Logistics is opening a high-technology logistics centre near its Columbus, Ohio, headquarters to take e-commerce fulfillment to the next level.

“We are focused on delivering innovative supply chain solutions to middle market and growth-focused customers,” said ODW executive vice-president Jeff Clark.

“This facility brings a scalable, out-of-the-box e-comm fulfillment solution to companies that serve key U.S. and Canadian markets.”

The location—along Interstate 71 in Grove City—provides a strategic hub that is within a 10-hour drive to nearly 50 percent of the U.S. population and one-third of Canada.

The DC’s technology can be customized for each shipper.

The 200,000-square-foot facility is ready for multiple e-commerce shippers.

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 Tier 1 warehouse management system (WMS) is fully implemented throughout the building.

The facility is equipped with technology that includes bar code 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 fully 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 per hour.

“This is just one example of our ability to satisfy distribution requirements at this facility,” Clark said.

“We are proud of this milestone for ODW, and we look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with leading e-commerce retailers.”
