HOW DSC helped Kimberly-Clark Healthcare drive down costs while improving sevice
The right combination of attitude, skills and effort makes a new deployment center bigger and better
When Kimberly-Clark Healthcare decided to turn a distribution center in Roanoke, TX, into a mega deployment center, more than twice the size of their next largest facility, K-C knew the magnitude of the undertaking. And, they knew DSC Logistics was ready to handle the challenge.
DSC doubled the volume, doubled the size, revamped and reorganized the Roanoke deployment center, prepped the building and put the people and equipment in place-in eight weeks! Then we nailed down the deployment process to K-C's four other distribution centers and made it possible for K-C to ship full truck loads (TL) direct out of the Roanoke facility.
The Roanoke facility, managed by DSC, now serves as the stock clearinghouse for manufacturing facilities in Mexico and Ft. Worth. With so much product at one location, K-C can ship TL direct to some of its major customers instead of shipping smaller LTL orders from multiple locations. K-C can bypass the regional distribution centers, cut costs significantly and provide better service.
