Logistics company achieves near real-time data across their organization

Could a real-time, self-serve, data reporting platform in the hands of your team members help your organization?


In the fast-paced, hands-on, 3PL work environment, logistics companies require near real-time reporting on key metrics to track warehouse capacity as well as warehouse operation activities.
Our 3PL client is a long-standing logistics service provider based on the east coast. With a wide array of products across consumer-packaged goods, specialty foods, food ingredients, health and personal care products, and alcoholic beverages, the task of keeping track of every pallet and case is paramount to business success.
They needed a solution that would consolidate their data, reduce maintenance overhead, and allow them to scale in size as their data needs continue to grow.

Our solution

OneSix designed and developed automated data pipelines to easily move data from their legacy platform into a Data Lake. We created data models to handle the client’s current reporting needs and give them the flexibility to enhance them in the future. We worked with key stakeholders to develop reports that the enterprise can use for financial analysis, warehouse workload trends, and warehouse occupancy.

OneSix took advantage of many powerful cloud data platforms to create the appropriate best-of-breed solution for our client:


A modern data platform solution made near real-time data accessible to the different departments in the organization. The C-suite is able to view current and historic financial reporting, slicing and dicing the data by key business attributes to identify high-cost areas. The operational teams utilize the warehouse workload reporting to improve labor utilization, identifying and eliminating bottlenecks and prioritizing warehouse activities based on high-volume tasks and deadlines

The result is a modern, data-driven approach to tackling the complex problem-solving required in the 3PL industry.


My experience was fantastic with OneSix. They listen to your query carefully and then are able to solve your issues within the correct time frame and reasonable price. Super knowledgeable team!

One of my favorite things about One Six is their willingness to work with us on whatever we need. Early on in the project, we determined we needed an additional tactical resource instead of an advisory one, and One Six happily switched out resources for us, ensuring we had what we needed to complete the project.

They dig in and help understand the problem, how to think about it, provide the best technical options of how to solve it, then execute as quickly as possible. This is by far the best way to help me make sure we're successful, and that I know what's being done and how to support it once they're finished.
