West coast distribution operation unable to meet demand in small parcel processing area during peak season.

Life Sciences

Due to supply chain and warehouse inefficiencies, the client was not meeting the rising demand for field installation kits. This was delaying revenue recognition, and resulting in lost sales. Their setup required 300 feet of walking per kit ordered—a total of six miles per day. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) showed a 13-hour cycle time for the most frequently built kit, rendering them unable to keep up with demand.

Large Industrial Equipment Manufacturer

Fortune 500 manufacturing company experiencing performance problems requiring fast-paced facility relocation. This company’s customer base includes large Big Box home improvement retailers and small to mid-size wholesale distributors.

Time was not the only imperative -- the existing location unnecessarily increased the cost to serve their ever changing customer base.

Aftermarket Automotive

Dual Electronics Corporation

Dual Electronics had outsourced its distribution near its port of importation. Dual did not accurately track inventory, leading to stock-outs, missed shipments, and customer delivery delays. Inaccurate inventory caused uncertainty leading to increased safety stock, residence costs, and taxes. When combined with the extended transit time due to the DC location, the overall cost-to-serve key customers became unacceptable.
