Case Study

Feasibility Studies for Commercial Mail/Package Company

The Challenge – Feasibility Studies

Client: Commercial Mail/Package Company
Objective: Conduct feasibility studies for distribution centers

A major commercial package and mail carrier required a consulting mechanical engineering resource to prepare individual feasibility studies for multiple distribution centers throughout the US. The client needed a highly responsive engineering firm that could quickly and accurately provide them with numerous feasibility studies. In addition, they had a short time scale to have the analyses performed and required assistance from an outside engineering provider. By Sterling Engineering completing the project accurately and on time, the client proceeded to install the new equipment across all of their facilities.

  • The project’s overall goal was to capture lost revenue precipitated by under-reporting the size and weight of customers’ packages.
  • The client had already identified two vendors who could provide them with scanning equipment that would vastly improve the accuracy of the required measurements. However, since each of their distribution centers is unique, a feasibility study was needed for each site to determine how to install the new equipment best.

Sterling’s Solution

A team approach, with a project manager, mechanical engineers for site inspection, and mechanical designers/drafters to complete documentation.
The project manager prepared a comprehensive Project Plan to address travel, logistics, schedule, delivery, and cost.
Sterling’s team visited each site to assess as-built status, measurements, photographs, and current documentation, and provide options to install the new equipment.
Sterling was able to provide all of the capabilities required. Feasibility plans for each site were made with up-to-date documentation.
