How DSC Helped The Musco Family Olive Company Improve Service To Wal-Mart And Reduce Costs Through Consolidation

Sometimes the fruit has to travel far from the tree…and when you care about your product as much as the Musco Family Olive Co. does, you care about the way it’s handled along the way.

The Musco Family Olive Co. had always shipped their product from California to many small distribution facilities across the country, but they knew they needed to eliminate the ineffi-ciencies in this system. Plus, their largest customer, Wal-Mart, was increasing the number of orders Musco received and at the same time reducing the size of those orders and causing a shift to less-than-truckload (LTL) deliveries. Musco knew they needed to convert LTL into truckload (TL) deliveries, to gain efficiencies and improve service to Wal-Mart. In other words, they needed the consolidation services provided by DSC Logistics.
