HOW DSC helped a "Fortune 50" create an alternative plan to better service their customers
Folding a business operation into a global Logistics Center without a wrinkle

Make changes in the network with minimal disruption to your customers...check. Cause no disruption to the supply chain...check. Contain the costs of the transition...check. Go to DSC Logistics for the plan to make this all happen...check.

It was as straightforward as that for a "Fortune 50" company when they determined their network was too large and needed to be adjusted. The company wanted to close a private bonded facility dedicated to them, operated by DSC, and locate that same operation within DSC's dedicated and bonded global Logistics Center only 20 minutes away.

DSC, in collaboration with the customer, provided the plan and the execution, taking the lead on the entire project. We folded all of the business, including employees, from the facility into the Logistics Center. Switching from stock transfer to direct ship to the wholesaler required new processes and affected the entire operation. We did it all without disruption to the supply chain and within the prescribed budget.
