  • Recruiting
  • Risk aversion
  • Cost reduction
  • Process improvement
  • Value added services
  • Increased throughput
  • Flexibility
  • Diversified supply chain
  • Building oversight


SIMOS leadership took over operations of the Elwood eCommerce distribution center in 2007. Their focus and key objectives are to provide labor, leadership and a partnership to help this DC meet or exceed KPIs.

The team was given flexibility and empowerment to use their engineering and operational expertise to improve processes, building layout and other critical functions to keep up with the evolving demands.


With their strategic approach this eCommerce distribution center met or exceeded budgeted CPU, efficiency, quality, inventory control, and various service level agreements.
