Case Studies

 

 

Losses turned into gains

Problem:

Our client is the world’s third largest manufacturer of construction equipment with revenues in the billions, producing over 300 types of vehicles in 22 plants worldwide.

Due to ever-increasing demand for production footprint, the decision was made to outsource inventory storage and management to a 3PL to free up space.

Our client was also suffering from poor inventory accuracy and had been forced to write off a 7-figure related financial loss.

Solution:

Dockside was chosen as partner due to our warehousing pedigree, competent team, technology and business processes.

      • Up to 10 inbound and 10 outbound shipments per day
      • 2 hour turn time on hot shipments (from receipt to delivery to plant dock)
      • 257 part numbers (from pins to chassis)
      • 80,000 SF of occupied space
      • WMS with real-time inventory visibility

Results:

      • Inventory accuracy improved from 22% to 99.8% in 2 months
      • 100% on-time shipping
      • 100% Customs compliance
      • Spearheaded supplier packaging improvements through reporting and design/prototyping

Services Used:

  • Dedicated Space
  • Value-Added Services
