In 2006 Swanson Health Products (SHP) turned to SSI SCHAEFER’s expertise in leading distribution technologies in order to undergo a remodeling of its order picking processes at the Fargo facility. The decision came in the wake of a significant growth in market demand which resulted in a rapid expansion of the product range.

In this competitive market, SHP was compelled to reorganize its warehouse to offer optimal quantities with a high service level and short delivery times, and to optimize the distribution service process.

The success of the first project that resulted in the flawless installation of an SSI SCHAEFER Carousel System convinced SHP to choose SSI SCHAEFER as a long term partner to help the company increase the efficiency and the capacity of its warehouse step by step.
