RJ Schinner is a $200 million redistribution company with 12 distribution centres, averaging 6,503 square metres (70,000 square feet). With 60 years of experience, the company supplies its customers with high quality foodservice, paper, grocery, and janitorial and sanitation supplies across the United States. RJ Schinner has accelerated its expansion and, in the last seven years, has opened new branches each year, making it one of the largest independent redistributors in the United States.
To accommodate its narrow aisles, RJ Schinner utilised multiple trucks to unload inbound trucks, pick customer orders and load outbound trucks. Downtime critically affects the company, resulting in managerial involvement and a halt in employee productivity. A lack of spare equipment and near-constant operation demanded trucks that are durable, multifunctional and reliable -- supported by a maintenance plan to avoid downtime and boost productivity.
