PHOENIX, May 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As a part of OnTrac's continuous effort to improve the quality and efficiency of our customer's shipping experience, the company has launched an initiative that will include installing material handling systems in all of our facilities.
After expanding operations into a building more than four times the size of its previous operation in Phoenix, OnTrac made the decision to install a material handling system. As a complement to its effort to increase the throughput capacity of the facility and handle increased volume levels, this decision also enables OnTrac to improve the customer experience and reduce the number of handles per package.
The new system has increased the company's throughput capacity by over 300% enhancing the speed of the OnTrac Ground Network and created 52 new job opportunities for Phoenix residents.
"We are truly excited about the increased capabilities that each of these new systems brings us. We are confident that these increased capabilities will give us the ability to both increase efficiencies and improve service," said Director of Operations Development Jim Brownlow.
Faster deliveries and more aggressive rates are a welcome concept for any business these days. These upgrades come as a direct response to the increasing number of businesses choosing OnTrac for all their overnight shipping, and guaranteed delivery needs. OnTrac is proud to offer the highest quality of service at the most competitive rates.
"Based on what we have seen, we are confident that our process rates and efficiencies will meet and exceed our expectations," Brownlow said. "This is not only exciting news for Phoenix but is exciting for all of the facilities that are having systems installed."
