How DSC helped a leading consumer products company redesign warehouse network operations
Improving service, accuracy and efficiency

Change isn't easy, especially when it involves a re-design of an entire five-warehouse network spread out across the country. So, when a leading consumer products company struggled with the changes they needed to make, their logistics partner, DSC Logistics, took charge, managing the change inherent in the first six months of warehouse integration and start-up.

Stepping into all operations, we implemented DSC systems, transitioning the company's manually-run system to our powerful Warehouse Management System (WMS).

A major inefficiency that our customer wanted to correct was control of their inventory and of inventory deployment. So, prior to the conversion, DSC analyzed their inventory at all sites, identifying stock by how fast it shipped and moving it to appropriate locations. We established efficient pick line locations to expedite order picking. We improved whole order allocation by increasing case fill; we handled the consolidating of orders and increased on-time deliveries.

The results: improvements across the board-in level of service, overall efficiency, cost savings...you name it.
