HOW DSC helped Maersk Logistics achieve Whirlpool's Asia sourcing strategy
The right partner makes all the difference

When Whirlpool Corporation began to purchase parts and components in Asia, they faced a change in overall business strategy, and a major change in thinking. They had no experience in working with a 3PL; outsourcing their inventory management was a new concept to them. But, certainly not to DSC Logistics' supply chain management veterans.

In Whirlpool's supply chain, DSC is the deconsolidation center. Goods from suppliers in Asia are shipped in containers by Maersk Sealand to Long Beach, CA, and intermodaled to DSC's Logistics Center in the Elwood, IL, intermodal center. From there, DSC, partnering with Maersk Logistics, takes over, managing inventory, warehousing and shipping to Whirlpool's eight plants.

Because each of the eight plants does something different, the goal is to improve efficiency through conformity. And, DSC's information and warehouse management systems and practices have been key in meeting this goal.

It's no wonder Maersk Logistics' nationwide search led that company to partner with DSC.
