Jul '12
SP Express, a leading national provider of third-party logistics and fulfillment services, is helping businesses in the textile industry to lower costs and increase service levels by automating their fulfillment and warehouse operations. SP Express has enhanced operations to specifically address the unique business needs of textile businesses, including: 

  • The addition of several Measuregraph 564 - 60 inch double and roll machines, allowing textile clients to double and roll and distribute their products out of the same facility 
  • A catch weight processing warehouse management system, which tracks inventory in both yards and bolts
  • The addition of a vendor compliance management program, which allows for complex labeling and shipping to retailers such as WalMart, Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft and Hancock Fabrics

"Specialty retail distribution is complex, with potentially thousands of direct to store shipments to leading trading partners and/or larger consolidated loads to regional distribution centers, shifting schedules, changing demands and cost considerations," said Robert Castaldo, Chief Operating Officer for SP Express. "SP Express is responding to the needs of our clients by offering the specialty services that enable businesses in the textile industry to track key operational metrics, control costs and increase service levels."

Textile Creations, a fabric wholesale company specializing in providing exclusive and artistic textiles to independent quilt shops, fabric stores and manufacturers, is currently utilizing the SP Express complete, end-to-end supply chain solution. According to George Kozlowski, Vice President of Textile Creations, "Working with SP Express, we were able to automate our entire fulfillment and warehousing operation, allowing us to better isolate and control costs, decrease our order turn time and increase client service levels. With SP Express as our logistics partner, I am confident that our supply chain solution is exceeding expectations, and I can focus on other facets of our business."
