HOW DSC helped Kimberly-Clark seamlessly integrate a company while streamlining processes
Head to toe supply chain solutions

Kimberly-Clark wanted to provide disposable apparel from head to toe, and newly-acquired Safeskin's latex and synthetic gloves completed the outfit. K-C's supply chain needed adjustments, and Safeskin had to be completely integrated into the K-C account.

DSC Logistics teams collaborated with K-C teams to address any systems issues, streamline processes, incorporate customer requirements and enhance product handling. Our engineering team designed an operational layout that optimized storage and created picking efficiencies with the combined product lines.

Safeskin product was produced and immediately shipped "on hold" from Thailand and Malaysia. Often the product remained "on hold" upon receipt and was subject to FDA inspection once received in our logistics centers. Our expertise in handling this complex hold/release process was critical since it was new to K-C.

We treated this integration as a start-up and allocated management support, operational strength and project planning to make sure the integration was executed flawlessly.
