Direct-to-consumer wine provider WineDirect will use VARGO software to improve efficiencies in its new fulfillment center.

Columbus-based distribution and fulfillment solutions provider VARGO announced that it was chosen to design and build a waveless material-handling system for WineDirect’s new Napa Valley fulfillment center, which is scheduled to be in use by late summer. The move to a bigger facility is prompted by significant growth in the direct-to-consumer wine industry.

VARGO enables distribution and fulfillment centers to function continuously, rather than in waves, through its Continuous Order Fulfillment Enterprise software. It says the new system will facilitate three times the shipment volume in half the time for WineDirect.
