Canon Manages the Workforce Providing the Staffing Flexibility You Need

Canon provides safety-trained, full-time warehouse employees and removes your burden of hiring, managing, training and developing staff. The Canon Warehouse and Distribution Service shifts the focus from filling open positions to completing the work on time and meeting customer expectations. We identify your challenges and leverage our teams in operations, human resources, safety, IT and procurement to identify the right talent to drive performance and results.

Unlike staffing companies, outsourcing with Canon provides you with accountability for the workforce, work quality and productivity levels based on SOWs and SLAs. Staffing levels can quickly flex up and down as your business requires. By outsourcing all or part of your warehouse and distribution operation to Canon, you can realize the following benefits:

  • Enhanced flexibility to grow and adapt to a constantly changing business climate
  • Greater ability to focus on higher value supply chain needs and customers
  • Improved performance guided by mutually defined service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Process efficiencies that drive lower distribution center operating costs
  • Peak season flexibility to expand or contract
  • Ability to leverage resources, capabilities and skills not available internally
  • Comprehensive workforce management that spans recruiting, training, retaining and providing employees with career opportunities
  • Access to new technologies and systems
  • Expertise in regulatory requirements and compliance
  • Established customized safety training programs
