How DSC helped Unilever streamline their process to achieve leaner inventory management
An automated solution that's much more than a simple comparison

Nobody said inventory management was easy, especially for manufacturing companies coping with acquisitions and/or mergers, as was the case with Unilever Foods North America (UFNA). But, does the necessary periodic reconciliation process have to be tedious, error-prone and probably outdated before it's finished?

No, definitely not, said UFNA's long-time logistics partner, DSC Logistics. DSC designed an automated process that enables UNFA to periodically compare a snapshot of the inventory status information in their system with a snapshot of the information in DSC's system. That way, UFNA's customers can be sure of receiving the product when they place an order because the information is synchronized in all systems. And, UFNA's production can be closer to demand, with a decreased amount of buffer stock and an increased number of inventory turns. And yet another advantage? No IT work on the part of UFNA was required. We used UFNA's business processes, supporting the way our customer does things.
