HOW DSC helped IMC design and start up a DC integrated with the start-up of a new plant
Leadership, collaboration and flexibility become ingredients in a recipe for success

When International Multifoods Corporation (IMC) acquired Pillsbury dry baking products, they had to get a manufacturing plant up and running, negotiate a new labor contract and create a distribution center within the plant. Since they had to do it all with no experience or infrastructure in the production and distribution of retail products, they needed the right 3PL: DSC Logistics.

DSC collaborated with IMC to merge two distribution centers into the one facility to handle both deployment from the plant to other distribution centers and regional distribution from the plant directly to customers.

DSC provided IMC with labor flexibility and leverage with their own employee base by managing all human resource issues, including having the workforce ready to go even with a continually moving startup date.

DSC's start-up team and consistent processes and systems established an environment that prepared for success, and DSC's team at the facility executed superbly. So, IMC could focus on their core competencies: manufacturing and marketing.
