How DSC helped Solo continually improve their warehouse operations
Constant analysis + greater efficiency = lower costs
Solo asked DSC Logistics to take over their transportation network with minimal disruption and manage the re-design of their warehouse operations to improve levels of service, overall efficiency and cost saving. Enough?
Of course not, said Solo's partner, DSC. There's always room for improvement.
DSC used data from our WMS system to analyze trends in product movement to redesign the Logistics Centers for optimum performance. We also used this data to make suggestions on removing obsolete product from the highly utilized facilities. By closely monitoring the inventory, trends and Solo's allocation process we were able to increase service levels, order fill, and assist Solo with the critical data needed to drive system-wide improvements.
We initiated meetings directly with Solo's customers to get feedback and to learn the issues involved-late orders, cuts, whatever. We asked how we could make customers' unloading and receiving process simpler. It's our approach: if your customer's having problems, let's get together and figure out solutions.
