The Zanesville Distribution Center was opened in 2009.
Since we opened, this 800,000 square foot state of the art facility has shipped xxx Representative orders. The facility can ship up to 50,000 cartons and handle 39,000 orders a day, but the main reason Avon Products developed Zanesville was to positively impact the Representative experience.

One of the reasons why the facility is this large is to accommodate the warehouse necessary to house the sufficient merchandise to satisfy your orders. There are approximately three days of merchandise available on the floor to the order processors.

We’ve implemented a variety technology so the potential for errors has been reduced.

But the real story behind Zanesville begins when you, the Representative, place your order.

Once received, your order enters through the warehouse management system.

Our software tracks inventory as we receive it, but more importantly when we take it out of the warehouse and place it in the picking stations so we know exactly where it’s located.

Our software also directs cartonization, which designates that your products be segregated into cartons in a logical fashion. Like products and / or complementary products can be packed together. And we can ensure that we don’t overfill a carton.

Order fillers are provided a packing list that tells them exactly what is supposed to be in each box.

On that packing list is the master bar code that essentially tells them all the Representative data and order data. That bar code is then used in the order start functions. Our system will tell us where that package needs to go throughout the floor to get fulfilled.

The typical order can be completely filled and at the loading dock in approximately 54 minutes – as opposed to an hour and 45 minutes at a branch location.

The literature is the first item that is placed in the box. Because it’s at the bottom of the box it’s protected from the other products as we put them in.

After the literature area, your carton goes through a series of mechanical assembly dispensing machines.
The heavier products are dispensed on top of the paperwork.

After it goes through the durable dispensing machine, your carton, with the literature on the bottom and the heavier items already in it will now go through the delicate mechanical assembly machine.

With approximately 2600 items dispensed here, 30% of the order will come from this area.

We have the ability to take small and delicate items and bag them separately so they’re easier for you to find and catalog upon delivery.

Products that don’t lend themselves to automatic dispensing and have to be manually picked are dispensed in areas we call station lighting.

As the orders come into the stations the bar code will trigger the lights. As the operator pushes the button, the light will go out but the number will stay so they know they need to pick 1 or 2 or more items. Then a green light comes up and that signals that everything has been picked.
The station lighting ensures accuracy.

Error correction detects when the items did not dispense properly from the mechanical assembly.

If there is a known exception in the system, rather than it going out the door, it’s flagged by the system and is 100% inspected. We’re using bar codes to make sure everything is correct.

The order is also checked through weight measurement. We look at the calculated weight of the order verses the scale weight. If there is a variance we’ll go through the order to uncover why that variance exists.

The package lids are closed sealed with tape to close the cartons. The cardboard cartons are much stronger and have a better chance of withstanding transit particularly through UPS’s system. Here to tell you more about the innovative packaging about your Avon products is Eric Lee, Director of Customer Service at the Zanesville facility.

Everyone at Avon Products is very proud that we have built the Zanesville operation to satisfy the requirements of LEED – Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design. We have undertaken a number of steps to meet that criteria.

For example, we have energy efficient motors that run the conveyors. We also have energy efficient lighting – most of it is motion activated.

This large 2500 tank collects melted snow and rain from the roof. That water is used to flush the toilets.

Everyone at the Zanesville facility is proud to work for Avon Products and dedicated to servicing all of you – the heart of Avon: our Representatives.
And speaking of representatives, let’s hear what a few of you think of the products distribution from the Zanesville facility!
