Sedlak helps develop supply chains that are flexible, scalable, agile and unique to each client’s individual needs. Our analyses and recommendations focus on Network Strategy, Inventory Planning & Optimization, Omni-Channel Fulfillment and Transportation Management.
Sedlak has built an unsurpassed body of knowledge and experience in designing facilities and operations for distribution-intensive environments. Our experts employ a fully collaborative methodology, precision data analytics, intelligent use of technology and a focus on process improvement to achieve operational efficiency, targeted service levels and satisfactory return on investment.
Sedlak takes a business-oriented approach to information systems in order to enable holistic solutions. We maintain independent, working relationships with major systems providers to stay abreast of industry trends and solutions development. We have worked with off-shelf, custom and legacy applications in hundreds of environments of all sizes and complexities.
Based on six decades of effective project management, Sedlak has become extremely knowledgeable in identifying how teams must collaborate to meet objectives and enable successful project completion. Sedlak’s project management methodology facilitates active client participation and uses appropriate project and change management tools to ensure stakeholder alignment and effective decision-making.
Logistics, distribution and delivery are key components to customer service for any client. If a client decides to outsource some or all of a logistics operation, Sedlak works with them to find the right third-party logistics provider to handle the job. We also help 3PLs optimize their operations, systems and overall network strategy.
It is with confidence that we have utilized the services of Sedlak for over a decade. Regardless of the size of the project or the challenges involved, I have seen successful results based on their ability to lead projects with the right balance of our involvement and Sedlak ingenuity in establishing the optimum facility/operational designs.
VP of Engineering Systems
We are very happy with the work Sedlak put together for us. Sedlak kept in constant communication with us throughout the project and the information provided was beyond our expectations. We were able to improve our production throughput by working with Sedlak to analyze our current process, identify opportunities, plug the improvements into a computer simulation, and implement the improvements on the production floor.
Sedlak’s consultants bring an expertise and understanding of distribution/operational methodologies to each and every project. What makes them stand out is their innate desire to share their knowledge and keep us informed so that when the project concludes, our management and project team are positioned to move forward with the new design confidently.
VP of Engineering and Systems
They stay with a project until it’s complete. A lot of organizations design something and walk out the door, and you’ll never find them again. Sedlak follows through; they’ll keep working on that thing until it’s perfect.
Head of Global Warehousing
Sedlak was there throughout the entire process, from conceptual design through to successful start-up. They made sure none of the details were overlooked. Sedlak really made a difference in the success of our project.
Regional VP of Operations
Someone once told me to choose vendors you can trust and then trust them. Sedlak brought to the table a level of professionalism and down-to-earth sensibility that earned our trust.
CEO and Director
When we needed an industrial engineer to join our team and enhance our consulting services for a special client, we selected Sedlak because of the company’s reputation. We were pleased to get someone extensively experienced with warehouse people, equipment and systems.
I count Sedlak as one of the best companies, if not the best company, I’ve ever worked with. The organization is extremely classy from top to bottom. I’ve never met a whole team of people who understood and were so committed to the customer relationship – a blueprint that other companies could learn from.
Senior Project Manager
The recommendations coming out of Sedlak’s six-week study have allowed us to focus on problem areas and execute real-time changes, which immediately improved the effectiveness of our distribution processes and procedures.
VP of Operations
Sedlak proved to be a very resourceful, no-surprise, well-managed company. Their innovative thinking reduced my capital expenditure quite a bit, and is really what separates Sedlak from the people I’ve dealt with in the past.
VP of Services
We needed to test a high-volume concept before building it. Sedlak created a complex and sophisticated simulation that exceeded our expectations…and gave us the answers we needed.
VP of Corporate Operations
Our long-term relationship with Sedlak gives us access to a long history of relevant experience every time we start a new project. And it allows us to start a project without a learning curve. That’s a significant advantage.
VP of Corporate Operations
The first thing that comes to mind with Sedlak is focus. They keep you, your company and everybody involved with the project focused on what it is you’re trying to do and when things need to be done. They will keep you focused. They were very good at keeping the project rolling.
Distribution Center Director
Sedlak is very much a ‘hands-on’ type of operation. They took us step by step through the process, and helped us understand everything that was going on. They knew what to look for; they had done this before, so they knew the intricacies of the bidding process, the installation, and the follow through.
After implementing Sedlak’s recommendations, we found this past year we shipped 15% more units with 5% less expense. Productivity has increased 20%.
Director of Distribution and Facilities
For a few years now, we have been hearing about the future of robots in distribution centers and the roles they would play. The fact of the matter is, until very recently, we could not recommend robots to our clients because systems, controls, and applications were just not mature enough, and we couldn’t show them a real-life example of a happy customer with robots deployed. There were a few exceptions, but it was difficult to show the ROI and justification for systems that seemed expensive and experimental. Now things are different. The time has come to consider robots in your distribution operations.Download White Paper
