HOW DSC helped Eveready/Energizer manage a high value product
It's all in the details when it comes to exceeding requirements for accuracy and security

Sure, every manufacturing company wants to sell as many products as possible. But, sometimes it's not just about high volume. It's about high value and managing to the appropriate level of detail, accuracy and security needed in warehousing and shipping the product. And, when that's the case, it's about having a partner you can trust to customize handling and storage solutions.

Eveready/Energizer had such a partner in DSC Logistics when it came to managing warehousing and shipping of high value product such as hearing aid batteries and camera batteries, small in size but high in dollars and numbers in cases and pallets. DSC managed the details for Energizer in several important ways: maintaining an exacting inventory, monitoring the security of the inventory, designing a unique storage solution, and picking and shipping in "each" quantities to specialty locations and mass merchandisers.

DSC's process-driven culture makes this attention to detail and flexibility possible.
