How DSC helped Solo increase efficiency and reduce costs in their international business
Taking on the world through information and education

Customer-oriented and cost-conscious-these terms can apply to the same company. Just ask Solo.

Solo wanted on-time shipping, more shipping options, and reduced cost and transit time for their international shipments. So, for the first time, they utilized a logistics partner, DSC Logistics.

Just prior to DSC's becoming their international transportation partner, Solo purchased two organizations outside the U.S., one in Japan and one in England. Collaboratively, Solo Cup USA, Solo Cup Asia, DSC, and DSC's international freight forwarder partner developed standardized workflows from origin to final destination.

DSC also developed tools for greater visibility of order flows and forecasts for Solo's newly-acquired Japan location.

When Solo Cup Europe (U.K.) needed a second weekly alternative for shipping their containers to Europe out of Havre De Grace, MD, and contracted with a second steamship line, DSC acted swiftly to develop container pools and schedules for the two separate steamship lines.

In many ways, DSC's global knowledge impacted-indeed, changed-the way Solo did business.
