Workshops

9:00am-4:30pm (includes lunch)

Gap Inc., founded in 1969 by Doris and Don Fisher, has grown from a single store to a global fashion business with five brands—Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix. The Company excels in eCommerce as well as its brick-and-mortar presence which has made them experts in B2B and B2C parcel processing. You will spend a day getting an inside look at their just-completed and highly automated $42 million expansion of both their eCommerce and Retail distribution centers. The Sumner County campus is Gap Inc.’s largest distribution campus, encompassing more than 2.8 million square feet. Gap Inc. is also opening its doors to a recently renovated Omni channel distribution center servicing national distribution for Banana Republic and Athleta brands. The site is running Vargo’s “COFE” software which is a wave-less single order system using a euro-sort Bombay sorter and a lighted put-wall for final sorting to the customer. The retail building is 1.2 million square feet servicing the central United States for Old Navy and is running both Cranes and Multi-Shuttles to eliminate 100% of all manual pick activity.
