Case Study

How DSC Helped Rich Products Create A New Network

But, that’s definitely what happened when premier family-owned food company, Rich Products Corporation (RPC), came to DSC Logistics. Originally seeking only public warehouse pricing, RPC instead received a supply chain management solution that enabled them to optimize their network six months ahead of plan.

Rich Products had recently acquired JW Allen to gain more of an entry into the dry business. So, first they needed to figure out what to do with the six new distribution centers and a manufacturing facility, which, with RPC’s existing system, created a non-integrated and over-lapping network. And, of course, they wanted to save money and maintain customer service.

RPC had the challenges and DSC had the tools and the skills to build the solution, utilizing LogicTools’ suite of supply chain planning software to design a new network. We used the powerful network modeling tool, LogicNet, to create a real-world scenario capable of delivering the calculated savings. Plus, we used our tactical transportation optimization tools, powered by NuLogix, to measure the consolidation potential within Rich Products’ shipments and DSC’s current customers. The results from the tactical models were inputted into the strategic model (LogicNet) to deliver the most optimal results for RPC.
