Men’s Wearhouse ships from 1,800 stores and multiple distribution centers to domestic and international destinations.
The drive to meet consumer demand, balance inventory and optimize fulfillment has pushed e-Commerce delivery from distribution centers to stores. While theoretically advantageous, store-level shipping presents a number of significant challenges: carrier selection is limited, services aren’t supported and rate shopping is near impossible.
Logistyx solves this problem with Logistyx Transportation Management Execution ™ (TME), a solution that provides stores with instant access to carriers and services that offer the best rates for each particular location. Seamlessly integrated with Manhattan’s Store Inventory and Fulfillment (SI&F) system, the solution supports multi-carrier rate shopping, shipment execution and label generation with accurate charge data, realtime shipment tracking and proof of delivery.
Lightbulbs.com easily transitions from six shipping stations to two, despite doubling e-commerce shipping volumes.
Service Lighting and their online superstore, LightBulbs.com, have provided lighting solutions for more than 1 million businesses and homes since 1951. When Paul McLellan, President, launched the company’s online store in 1996, he knew that technology was going to drive the growth of their company. Now, their eCommerce site brings in 80% of their business.
LightBulbs.com had six shipping workstations, all with standalone, carrier-provided shipping software. The shipping process was cumbersome.
LightBulbs.com was able to go from six shipping workstations to two stations, combining the Logistyx parcel shipping software, Rice Lake iDim 3D Dimensioning systems, and two Size-IT mobile dimensioning calculators. They gained tremendous efficiency. When sales doubled in their peak season, they were able to handle all of the shipping volume on the two shipping workstations without adding staff.

McDavid eliminates bottlenecks in order packing/shipping lines and achieves 100% compliance with retail service requirements.
McDavid manufactures and distributes sports medicine equipment and performance wear for athletics. The company sells its products through multiple sales channels including “big box” retailers such as Sports Authority, “team” sales channel to professional, college and high school teams, a “team dealer” channel supporting trainers and trainer supply groups and via their website www.mcdavidusa.com.
McDavid must efficiently manage shipping to retailers and mass merchants, including customer-specific UCC labeling, the electronic transmission of advance ship notices (ASNs) to customers, and labeling and packing its products in certain ways. The failure to comply to these complex requirements can result in significant fines. So, the company faced a serious challenge when its existing parcel shipping system vendor went out of business.
After doing its due diligence on four vendors, the company chose Logistyx and implemented its Pack-IT, Stage-IT and Ship-IT™ solutions, complete with Zebra printers and mobile computers to further streamline order packing. Not only did the Logistyx system go ‘live’ right on time, but it delivered several significant enhancements for McDavid’s order fulfillment workflow.
- Eliminated errors in order fulfillment process
- Gained 100% compliance with retail service requirements
- Eliminated bottlenecks in order packing/shipping lines
- Eliminated manual processes to enhance productivity
