Barrett Distribution is a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider established in Massachusetts in 1941. It has grown to a family-owned network of warehouse facilities spanning the United States and even into Canada. Supporting a variety of regional and national customers, Barrett warehouses encompass more than 3 million square feet and cater to the movement of practically everything from consumer packaged goods and on-demand auto parts to the varied products of on-line retailers.
On a rapid growth path, as Barrett grew and expanded across the United States and Canada it faced the daily challenge of delivering continuously growing order volumes on time while creating new facilities to handle the increased volume efficiently and economically. A top priority was maximizing existing warehouse space to accommodate more products, all while avoiding the pitfalls of over-crowding or conditions that could contribute to reduce productivity. Barrett knew that downtime not only represents lost revenue, it represents disappointed customers.
