HOW DSC helped DowBrands achieve cost efficiency and exceed all other goals
Trust, teamwork and innovative technology characterize this joint venture

DowBrands had a goal: to dramatically reduce their finished goods distribution costs in conjunction with introducing state-of-the-art "liquid fill" technology into the finished goods production. Their plan: a new manufacturing plant to handle the new technology tightly integrated with a new distribution center utilizing Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) technology . . . all on the same site.

Because of the highly confidential nature of this technology and site development, it was essential for DowBrands to have a partner whose integrity they could depend on. So, they turned to long-time business partner, DSC Logistics, without seeking bids from anyone else. DSC and DowBrands designed the integrated manufacturing plant and distribution center, evaluated multiple sites and implemented the selected plan . . . in just 15 months.

As a result of this culture of collaboration, the Logistics Center came in under budget within the first full year and exceeded all other goals set, including attendance, turnover, productivity and safety.
