Wal-Mart Selects DSC Logistics as Consolidation Program Partner
DSC To Provide Consolidation Services for Wal-Mart Remix Program
Chicago, Illinois (October 27, 2005)—DSC Logistics, a leading supply chain management company with a nationwide network announced that it has been selected by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. to provide consolidation logistics services for its Remix program.
Wal-Mart’s Remix program is designed to improve store efficiency, and as a result suppliers will receive smaller, more frequent orders. For many vendors this will shift their delivery mode from truckload to less-than truckload (LTL). After testing Remix in Florida, Wal-Mart experienced a reduction in stock-outs, improved store efficiency and increased sales, encouraging Wal-Mart to roll out the program nationwide. DSC will assist Wal-Mart's suppliers to improve service and lower their supply chain costs by providing truckload delivery efficiencies for (LTL) suppliers.
DSC’s consolidation program, called MOSTSM (Multi-Vendor Optimization Strategy), is an innovative program that allows participating suppliers to maintain product inventory at any, or all, of the 5 MOST consolidation centers that are located in Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Allentown. DSC consolidates the orders from multiple Wal-Mart vendors and delivers full truckloads to each of Wal-Mart’s 39 regional remix distribution centers, avoiding the inefficiencies of LTL deliveries while benefiting from less expensive truckload service. Suppliers who participate in the program will benefit from DSC’s unparalleled warehouse and transportation management tools, technology, services and personnel.
“Our MOST program offers Wal-Mart suppliers improved delivery reliability which minimizes
stock-outs and leads to increased sales,” remarked Ann Drake, chief executive officer, DSC Logistics. “MOST provides a way to economically and efficiently ship products with short lead times and smaller quantities to Wal-Mart.”
