How DSC helped Zevex optimize and execute their supply chain to better meet needs of customers
More efficient operations at the same cost

The folks at Zevex International were concerned about the cost of their supply chain. But they were even more concerned about how long it was taking to fill orders.

Zevex had purchased a company that manufactured feeding pumps, specifically designed to fit into children's backpacks. With their existing network, the average distance of over 1200 miles between distribution center and customer caused their order-to-delivery cycle times to be higher than the competition's. All customer orders shipped via less-than-truckload (LTL) and parcel.

DSC Logistics conducted a network model using the LogicNet network optimization tool comparing multiple configurations of the Zevex network, and selected an optimal network of three distribution centers in California, Texas and Pennsylvania.

The three DSC Logistics Centers handle Zevex's inbound, storage and outbound. While costs on inbound transportation increased, costs went down on Zevex's outbound because they're so much closer to their customer base. So, it's basically the same cost for faster, more efficient operations.
