Standish, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/17/2013 -- Delivering more products on fewer trucks reduces fleet up to 25%. Combining C-Store and grocery deliveries increases fleet flexibility and reduces assets while changing from side-load to end-load trucks reduces maintenance costs. Fewer trucks on the road cuts fuel costs.
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).
