HOW DSC helped Candle Corporation of America transition their supply chain to facilitate growth
It takes more than candles to increase the visibility of events throughout the supply chain
When you're growing fast - so fast that your logistics capabilities can't keep up - what do you do? If you're Candle Corporation of America (CCA), you bring in DSC Logistics to handle it all for you.
When you do, in only three months your operations are consolidated into one logistics center, replacing the old system of multiple shipping sites. With DSC's experience and Warehouse Management System (WMS), you increase picking, shipping and inventory accuracy and achieve your goals of reducing costs and improving service to your customer base.
Plus, partnering with DSC, you're named "Supplier of the Year" by your biggest customer, Wal-Mart. You're recognized for superior service, accuracy, timeliness and responsiveness.
Through extensive pre-planning with CCA, weekly meetings and attention to all the details, DSC effectively managed the work force, flexing labor within the facility to handle the spikes in demand that come with the cycles in the candle business.
