Magline Innovation 2014 Addresses Lean Initiatives to Meet Delivery Requirements


Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2014 -- Joe Howeth, Delivery Systems Sales Manager for Magline, discussed how the company is addressing lean initiatives within the delivery/warehouse efficiency- deliver model, such as delivering more products faster and with less expense. Howeth noted, “A driver can gain up to 50% in efficiency using a Magline System versus a traditional delivery using a bay trailer. This percentage has a large variable tied to it depending on how the potential customer is delivering their product currently.”

Howeth also shared that, “I began my career in the DSD business (direct store delivery) and spent sixteen years in that environment before coming to Magline in 2002. I worked for Pepsi in Ft. Worth, TX where I started as a merchandiser out of college and left Pepsi as a District Manager over C-Store Sales and Delivery. I spent six years at President Baking Company where I was the district manager over ten independent route owners delivering Murray and Famous Amos Cookie products. President Baking was purchased by Keebler. I came to Magline as a field sales representative and have held jobs with Magline as a Region Manager, Business Development Manager (Food Service) and currently the Delivery Systems Sales Manager.”
