How DSC helped Pioneer improve service and reduce costs by integrating their supply chain
Devising a solution to keep an entire packaging cycle under one roof

When Pioneer looked to logistics provider, DSC Logistics, for a solution, they had confidence in our ability to keep their costs low. By consolidating steps and eliminating transportation to and from another provider, DSC enabled Pioneer to reduce inventory, improve service and lower costs.

Pioneer asked DSC to take over packaging the individual retail boxes for the DVD writer product line for which we were already handling distribution. With Pioneer, we devised a solution that keeps the entire packaging cycle under one roof, from initial product inbound to component inventory to the physical packout and eventual shipment of the finished goods. Having us perform the packaging enables Pioneer to reduce transportation costs as well as turn time on the product. Plus, they get tighter inventory controls on the components (manuals, software, screws, etc.)

It's a great example of DSC's flexibility. We took a packaging operation different from anything else we were performing and developed a working solution.
