How DSC helped Solo improve their export process
Changes in loading and labeling mean greater efficiency and lower costs

The company might be named Solo but it was definitely a duet when Solo partnered with DSC Logistics. DSC created innovative solutions to improve loading and labeling of Solo's international shipments.

DSC's Logistics Center in Mira Loma, California, handled Solo shipments to Starbucks mostly in Japan and Australia. The initial requirement was that pallets could not be double-stacked or exceed 53 inches. This meant that all shipments went out with way too much air, and trailers were under utilized.

DSC worked with Solo and Starbucks to change the loading requirements. Then we could actually build pallets much taller than 53 inches that would ride damage-free and could be off loaded easily on the distant end.

Meanwhile, at our Logistics Center in Arlington, Texas, DSC identified a new method to label consumer product shipped to Mexico. The result: a 92 percent cost savings for Solo.

We know that what seem to be small details can make a big difference.
