How DSC helped a major paper products company manage their entire supply chain
Efficient operations: a year-round goal
Summer's a busy time for one major paper products company, what with all those outdoor get-togethers...and the rest of the year's a picnic, too, with DSC Logistics to keep their entire supply chain running smoothly. DSC managed it all-raw goods to the plant, finished goods to the warehouse and from there to the customer and sometimes to the end user-whatever the season.
The five DSC Logistics Centers operated at 100 percent capacity and at 100 percent efficiency. When we took over the company's transportation management, we corrected inefficiencies to establish control of their inventory and of inventory deployment.
The Logistics Centers all operated with multiple overflow sites-one location even had five overflow buildings-and we set up a more efficient operation at each location.
We were able to handle the company's seasonal spikes in volume with our constant preparation and flexible, well-trained workforce.
