Logistics provider improves decision-making with a new modern data architecture

How could transforming to a Modern Data Organization improve your logistics company?


Our client, a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, focused on helping businesses handle their e-commerce order fulfillment and retail distribution, has fulfillment centers strategically located across the nation to reduce order transit time.
The client has multiple warehouse management systems (WMS) for inventory management and for monitoring warehouse activities such as receiving, putaway, picking, packing, and shipping. Multiple Warehouse Management systems from different vendors resulted in data silos and data inconsistencies creating delays in enterprise-wide reporting.
They needed a solution that would consolidate their data, reduce maintenance overhead, and allow them to scale in size as their data needs continued to grow.



Our solution

OneSix implemented a solution that utilizes modern cloud data architecture to reduce maintenance overhead as well as allow the client to scale in size as their data needs continued to grow.

The solution consisted of replicating all the data from various operational systems into a Data Lake. A Data Warehouse was designed to consolidate all data into a centralized location designed for easier access, analysis, and reporting.

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


With this single source of truth (the cloud Data Warehouse), the organization was able to generate comprehensive reporting on KPIs that allowed the business to look at these numbers with confidence to support strategic decision-making.

The operations team utilized these reports generated from the Data Warehouse for inventory planning to reduce the risk of stockouts and identify demand patterns. The facility managers utilized the reports to identify inefficiencies in warehouse activities to improve the order fulfillment turnaround time.


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.
