How DSC helped ACH meet the seasonal demands of their business
Combining all the right ingredients for success
During the holiday baking season, things tend to heat up for ACH Food Companies. Demand for their product (corn syrup, corn oil and cornstarch) increases, and so do the challenges of keeping the product flowing smoothly through their supply chain.
At our West Coast Logistics Center, DSC Logistics, in collaboration with ACH, meets those challenges effectively and creatively.
Based on ACH's profile, DSC engineers, using DSC's sophisticated directed putaway system, optimized space requirements by utilizing bulk locations to their fullest, and only placing low stackability items in the racks. Our WMS provides the necessary flexibility and visibility. And, our employees are trained to be prepared to manage the demands of the quick-moving capture, carry, maintain, release, pick and load process.
DSC acts as a shock absorber, in a sense, structuring a solution that accelerates movement of the delayed product. It also results in disciplined inventory with positive results in product control and security.
