How DSC helped a "Fortune 50" implement a state-of-the-art delivery system
"Hands on" customer service for a "no touch" freight handling operation

When one "Fortune 50" company sought to gain efficiency in the movement of product from finished goods area to distribution center, they depended on long-time logistics partner, DSC Logistics, to make it all happen.

Through DSC's efforts, the company realized the goal of a "no touch" all-robotics freight handling system that allows for greater accuracy. From the time it comes off the production line through its "auto unload" in DSC's Logistics Center, the product is handled by the mechanized robotic system, reducing time and gaining overall savings.

Advising our customer through engineering, construction and design phases, DSC managed the transition of phasing out old processes and aligning new processes with the customer's expectations. We tested the new robotics system for operational efficiency and we developed labor models to determine headcount needs and potential reductions in personnel.

The "Fortune 50" company knew they could depend on DSC because of our ability to "see through our customer's eyes" to both determine and assist with attaining their goals.
