Ace Endico is a full-service supplier of fine foods headquartered in Brewster, NY. It provides restaurants, hotels, country clubs, casinos, cruise lines, athletic venues and healthcare and educational facilities in the tri-state area with high quality food products, supplies and service. The company’s state-of-the-art facility includes more than 125,000 square feet of floor space and 5 million cubic feet of storage capacity, housing more than 10,000 individual items ranging from frozen and refrigerated foods to produce and paper goods.
With as many as 60,000 cases of perishable food products coming in and out of the warehouse seven days a week, keeping up with constant demand is critical. So, too, is the ability to track everything for accuracy as shipments are logged in and deliveries are logged out. With the company accepting orders until 10:00 pm for delivery by 5:00 am the next morning, Ace Endico’s management looks for every available way to increase efficiency. Floor supervisors are constantly monitoring lift truck utilization and safety compliance. In addition, they need to address impacts immediately to ensure maximum uptime throughout the company’s three shifts of operation.
