Swift Water Logistics and Magliner CooLift Benefits Included Account Efficiency up to 50 Percent
Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/17/2013 -- The DSD Supply Chain Philosophy of Swift Water Logistics is an approach to supply chain improvement. It is based upon a framework that functional groups do not succeed solely within their business area. Significant cost savings within a supply chain are identified between functional groups; the touch points where information and processes are handed off. This innovative approach to assessing and improving the health of a company’s supply chain is known as TST™ (Total System Thinking).
Swift Water works with Magline regarding CooLift. The benefits are described at http://www.swiftwaterlogistics.com/pdf/CooLift%20System%20Benefits.pdf. The ability to improve account efficiency up to 50% with higher capacity loads mean fewer trips from truck to store. Orders pre-picked and loaded in route sequence eliminate driver pick time and are compatible with automated pick systems. Drop and wrap CooLift pallets for no-touch merchandising displays.
