Customer Challenge:

NTT Data, a leader in the supply chain industry, faced significant challenges in optimizing its warehouse operations. With multiple warehouses containing disjointed layouts and limited rack space, they struggled to efficiently manage inventory and maximize storage capacity. Their outdated infrastructure and reliance on gas-powered equipment further hindered their productivity and sustainability efforts.


Recognizing NTT’s need for a comprehensive overhaul, Summit Handling stepped in with a tailored best practice in the industry of a warehouse solution. Led by Salesman Chris Burton, Summit Handling conducted a thorough site assessment collaborating closely with John Ambs, NTT’s Senior Director of Supply Chain, and his local team. Leveraging their professional expertise in warehouse optimization, Summit Handling proposed C.A.D. layout designs that prioritized space utilization and operational safety.

Additionally, Summit Handling collaborated with the architects and builders for the NTT Data site to get approval for the building permitting and completion of the sign-off from the local town for a certificate of occupancy approval.

By taking a holistic approach and considering all the facets of NTT’s warehouse operations, Summit provided a customized solution tailored to their unique challenges.
