HOW DSC helped Unilever integrate Tier One into their network
Sophisticated capabilities make a fast seamless transition happen

Sometimes you need a partner with more sophistication. And that's true in business, too.

Case in point: Unilever Bestfoods' Foodservice Division, Tier One, ships primarily to Taco Bell, Burger King and other major fast food customers. Unilever needed a provider with sophisticated systems capabilities to provide both information and reports close to real time.

DSC Logistics was already handling Unilever's retail and other food service divisions at one of our Logistics Centers so they knew we were ready to help them manage this change. They wanted to consolidate operations and integrate the Tier One business into DSC's system, allowing them to leverage our information systems connectivity.

These were big customers, so, as you can imagine, the transition had to be seamless and fast . . . as in two weekends fast. And, after the first weekend we were servicing the new Tier One customers as well as the base Unilever business. In fact, through it all, service to customers was flawless.
