Athens adds on in Memphis
May 18, 2013
Athens Memphis Builds On to the Future
With the addition of 54,000 sq feet of air conditioned
space, the new storage facility at Athens Distributing's Memphis
location now offers a total of 146,000 sq. feet to store a vast array of
wine and spirits.
With the help of Bob Metcalf and the people of
Intelligrated Systems, Athens now uses an automated system for seamless
picking and loading, which has been proven to reduce breakage and errors
in shipping. A nightly goal is to complete the loading process with
zero errors, and Athens employees have exceeded
expectations in this area once again by increasing efficiency.
The addition will prove to bring better efficiency to our warehouse and allow us to accommodate the wonderful brands that our suppliers have to offer. With the ease of our new conveyor system, our products will be able to be delivered to our consumers with less breakage. We are excited about our new addition to Athens Memphis and look forward to serving the Memphis community with excellence for decades to come.
