Lionel Racing produces and sells diecast NASCAR collectibles and is part of Lionel LLC., a storied brand of model trains and railroad sets. Gemereth explains how the company’s order fulfillment, warehousing and shipping processes underwent a huge change in scale and complexity after Lionel acquired the NASCAR collectibles business in 2010 and then merged the two operations in 2012.
