Finding logistical advantages for a company seeking an edge in productivity, efficiency
A company shipping containers of soluble coffee was looking for a service provider to drive productivity and efficiency on the logistical side of its business. Its first priority was minimizing stock on-hand at various warehouses by moving weekly shipments of containers out of these plants. Agility was awarded business on a tender contract for 12 months. We helped the customer find alternative carriers to alleviate recurrent issues related to storage and other factors causing delays. Then, we launched a pilot co-packing project to transform unpackaged goods into products ready to be stocked and sold on store shelves. We began building case boxes, labeling, barcoding, packaging, palletizing and shrink-wrapping. We distributed the pallets of finished product to a distribution center. Our efforts with the customer have led to improved stock and transit times.
