    OfficeMax Optimizes Its Distribution Network Strategy

    The OfficeMax supply chain supports 2 fundamentally different businesses – 50% retail (950+ stores) and 50% direct sales (thousands of contract customers).  The distribution network consists of 27 sites stocking in excess of 30,000 SKUs for replenishing stores and supplying direct and contract sales channels with next day delivery.  In 2008, with the onset of the recession, OfficeMax recognized it needed to continue to improve product availability and inventory turns while dramatically reducing operating expenses.  A distribution network optimization study was performed to leverage the recession and to drive network design innovation to position the company for long term profitable growth. This is the story of this study and the results that were achieved by OfficeMax.
