STORD's Model - Networked Distribution

Traditional supply chain networks have been built to be one-to-many networks that are patched together utilizing manual processes and inefficient operational constraints. This strategy has compounded over time to create poor data visibility, inefficiencies, and overspend. 

STORD enables shippers to escape these inefficiencies and operational constraints to build sophisticated and scalable supply chains and distribution networks with STORD's global logistics network and software.

STORD is the leader in creating digitally connected, agile supply chains for today’s leading Manufacturers, Distributors, CPGs, E-commerce sellers, Retailers, and more; by leveraging STORD's state-of-the-art cloud software connected to a network of 500+ warehouses, 15,000+ carriers, and extended 3PL services, STORD helps companies like yours with:

  • Inventory visibility across the distributed supply chain
  • Normalized data leveraging ML for actionable insight across all your supply chain data
  • Flexible and permanent warehousing, fulfillment, and distribution
  • Forward stocking location strategy, facilities and delivery
  • Last mile, truckload, LTL and intermodal transportation
  • Data analysis and network design

By building an integrated network of logistics service providers powered by advanced, cloud-based technology, STORD is building the next phase of warehousing and distribution, Networked Distribution.

What makes STORD's model special

You need a distribution network that accelerates your distribution capabilities, provides increased flexibility to respond to new markets and market changes, lowers your operational constraints, and provides you improved insights to make better decisions. STORD's integrated, technology-powered warehouses removes wasted inefficiencies, centralizes your insights, and scales with your business so you can cut fixed costs, improve delivery lead times, avoid stock-outs, and turn your supply chain into a competitive advantage. With our Chicago, Illinois warehouses and nationwide network, you can be sure that you have access to the optimal network for warehousing and distribution.

Nationwide Omni-channel Distribution

Store your inventory in a STORD Chicago warehouse as well as at distribution centers and fulfillment centers across the United States that allow you to scale to full omni-channel distribution across the country. Whether you're distributing to retailers, end-customers, consumers, or more, STORD's network of warehouses in Chicago, Illinois and across the country is purpose-built to enable companies with complex distribution requirements to excel. Shorten your transit times; remove inflexible, fixed costs; gain new insights; and turn your distribution network into a competitive advantage.

Oriented Around Your Success

Even with seamlessly automated integrations and a centralized, cloud-based system for managing your extended distribution network, it's always helpful to have additional support. STORD's supply chain and operations teams are available to assist across any part of your distribution network. Whether you have questions on where you should place your next warehouse or want to implement new processes at your Chicago fulfillment center facility, STORD's supply chain team can help you solve any challenges and keep your supply chain running smoothly.

Centralized Software for Distribution

Instead of logging-in to various warehouse management systems, order management systems, and more alongside your ERP or coordinating across email chains or phone calls, you can simply log-in to one system - STORD's cloud-based distribution-management system. From STORD's web system, you can manage your inventory, orders, shipments and more and gain insight into operational updates as well as high-level network insights.

Insights and Reporting

To operate across a distributed supply chain and complex distribution network, you need to be able to pull information from the systems you work with. Too often, pulling information from the distribution softwares you work with means manually going through scanned PDFs or getting snippets of the information in spreadsheets that your business intelligence team or supply chain analytics team needs to compile into a comprehensive picture, at which point it may be out-of-date. STORD's system standardizes the data across your distribution network and provides reports across your inventory movements, orders, and more.

Single Integration for Your Entire Distribution Network

The typical supply chain or distribution network contains 10s or even 100s of softwares that don't talk to each other, let alone the additional emails, text messages, phone calls, faxes, excel documents, pdfs, and more that exist in siloed email chains and communication platforms. STORD's software and integrative capabilities bring that to one location so that you simply utilize STORD's cloud-based software or integrate once from your OMS or ERP and get access to all of the information across your distribution network. You no longer have to worry about maintaining integrations to every logistics service provider in your network, individual warehousing facility, or ancillary systems; STORD is integrated across the network of providers and can layer in your network for visibility as needed.

ERP Integrations

Most supply chain "solutions" silo data outside your ERP system. STORD takes the opposite approach; STORD's system is purpose built for supply-chain and built with cutting-edge technologies and architectures to allow for integrations across all major ERP systems. Whether you're operating Netsuite, SAP, Infor, or an alternative, STORD integrates and can ensure that the information you work off of in your ERP matches what's happening across your distribution network. 

EDI, API, and more

Avoid months of prolonged, disjointed integration processes that so often end up getting delayed or extending over-schedule. With STORD, you work directly with our industry-leading integration team that can assist you in integrating to STORD's flexible software system in the integration method that is best for your system and IT requirements. STORD can handle EDI integrations, API integrations, flat-file integrations, automated workflows, and more.
