Project Description

Product is shipped from one of F&D’s global manufacturers to one of four Distribution Centers. These DCs are located in Savannah, GA, Baltimore, MD, Los Angeles, CA, and Houston, TX. The product is then shipped to one of F&D’s 174 stores across the United States. Once the product arrives, it can then be ordered by customers and shipped to their homes or picked up in store.

Due to the heavy and fragile nature of F&D’s products, as well as a unique supply chain, damage may be incurred during shipment.

The Capstone project team will evaluate damage data across the F&D network, identify opportunities for improvement, and build predictive tool for prioritizing future damage mitigation efforts.
