FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Bastian Solutions, a Toyota Advanced Logistics company, is thrilled to have worked with Duluth Trading Company, a Wisconsin-based lifestyle brand, to design and bring to life their newest distribution and fulfillment facility. The new fulfillment center is in Adairsville, Ga. and is the company's fourth fulfillment center and first to use advanced Autostore automation and robotics.
The Adairsville facility will be the third automated distribution and fulfillment center partnership with Bastian and serves as a major investment to support Duluth Trading’s Big Dam Blueprint. Bastian completed the first automated distribution and fulfillment center with Duluth in 2018 at the company’s Belleville facility. Bastian also recently completed an additional two projects in 2022 at the Midwest retailer’s Belleville and Dubuque facilities. The retailer’s plan is focused on digital growth and expansion that will better serve customers and its nationwide footprint of brick-and-mortar stores.
"Duluth Trading Company is dedicated to providing an outstanding experience for our customers. We are delighted to collaborate with Bastian on our state-of-the-art Adairsville facility," stated Kevin Helmeid, Vice President of Supply Chain & Logistics at Duluth Trading. "This facility will elevate our logistics and shipping capabilities, resulting in swifter, more efficient deliveries. We are grateful for the Bastian team and are confident that our joint efforts will further our commitment to deliver exceptional customer service."
The Adairsville omnichannel facility supports a seamless experience across Duluth Trading’s retail, wholesale and ecommerce channels in the region. Leveraging the AutoStore robotic storage and retrieval system, Exacta Warehouse Execution System and bag sortation, the facility is capable of processing and shipping an impressive 160,000 units per day. The new fulfillment center will allow Duluth Trading to better serve its customers by providing faster shipping times and supporting its footprint of retail stores nationwide, while creating hundreds of new jobs for the Atlanta area.
“This system will be a true testament towards Duluth Trading’s relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction while also supporting their ‘Big Dam Blueprint’. Their automation solution will help in unlocking their full potential for long-term, sustainable growth while also improving order fulfillment and increasing customer satisfaction,” said Aaron Jones, President and CEO of Bastian Solutions.
