DSC’s Columbus Logistics Center Awarded 2007 Top Gun
Chicago, Illinois (May 15, 2008) – DSC Logistics, an integrated logistics and supply chain management company headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, recently was presented with The Kellogg Company’s 2007 “Top Gun Award” in the retail category for excellence in service, cost, quality and innovation at DSC’s Columbus, Ohio, Logistics Center. The Top Gun Award, established in 2000, is the Kellogg Company’s highest honor given to third party logistics providers. In presenting the award, a spokesperson for Kellogg said the DSC Columbus team was “clearly a leader in the areas of case ordered accuracy. They demonstrated consistently solid numbers and, for (11 of the 12 months measured) had a yearly case order accuracy of 99.96% or greater. They also delivered strong results in the area of monthly net inventory…”
The DSC operation in Columbus achieved high scores on three Kellogg audits to qualify for the award; they scored a “Superior” rating on the AIB audit; were the only facility to achieve an overall “GREEN” score in the Property Management audit that measures ability to maintain the property and building in good operating condition; and scored well in the Inventory Audit. To win the Top Gun Award, DSC received scores that topped a field of eight Logistics Centers. This is the third time that DSC has been recognized in the Top Gun competition.
The partnership between DSC and Kellogg dates back to 1988, with the Columbus Logistics Center handling Kellogg products since 2000. In that time, DSC and Kellogg have successfully executed a number of major changes including conversion to SAP system, network realignment, a platform change, and expanded value-added services. In March of 2008, DSC was awarded additional business by The Kellogg Company and by 2009, will be managing a combined total of approximately 3.8 million square feet of warehouse space for Kellogg in Columbus; Allentown, Pennsylvania; and Atlanta, Georgia.
Michael Weinstock, senior vice president, operations for DSC said, “It is always an honor to receive awards from customers we value, but even more important is that meeting and exceeding the standards set by customers measures our own execution capability. It’s one of our main goals to maintain the highest level of efficiency and accuracy through whatever changes occur in a customer’s business.”
In April of 2008, DSC received another award from The Kellogg Company, this one recognizing DSC as one of Kellogg’s top diversity suppliers. DSC is a woman-owned business with more than 45 years of experience in logistics and supply chain management.
