HOW DSC helped a "Fortune 50" weather a massive hurricane
A quick-thinking Logistics Center team anticipates problems before they occur

As residents and businesses all up and down the East Coast anxiously watched weather reports following the path of Hurricane Isabel, the team at one of DSC's Logistics Centers in the mid-Atlantic region jumped into action. They collaborated closely with our customer, a "Fortune 50" company, to develop a plan.

On Monday, as it became obvious that Isabel was heading straight for the vicinity of the Logistics Center, the team decided to advance ship domestic and export orders. On Tuesday, the nearby port announced it would be closing down within 24 hours, requiring three days of product to be shipped in less than 36 hours. By Thursday morning, when the storm was just hours away, all orders had been completed and all shipments were on their way.

After power was terminated throughout the area at 4 p.m. on Thursday, DSC's generators kept the power on at the Logistics Center. By Sunday, even though much of the state was in shambles, DSC's Logistics Center resumed full operations.
