The customer is a global healthcare distributor, specializing in medical and surgical supplies for the acute care market. One of the biggest challenges they faced was a shortage of internal staff with the knowledge of logistics or the time needed to meet the goals of the business. They asked a team from Scott Sheldon to conduct a pilot program in the Midwest that could serve as a proof of concept.
Client was struggling with supply and demand balance due to significant changes in market conditions, rapidly changing customer requirements, high SKU growth, and the retirement
of key resources. The timing was right to implement new demand planning processes with a world- class technology solution.
Igloo Products Corporation contracted with Scott Sheldon to identify and implement improvements within their distribution and manufacturing operations.
After an initial one-week assessment, a project road map was developed containing projects grouped into 3 categories: quick hits, tactical, and strategic.
Lennox initially contracted Scott Sheldon for the purpose of implementation of Manhattan’s Open System integrated transportation and warehouse management system network-wide.
For Lennox, implementation of this technology is critical in supporting their re-designed distribution and wholesale store network.
This technology will provide automated dynamic transportation routing, rating, and invoicing. It will also provide seamless integration between both the Manhattan TPE and WM modules. Overall, this solution will be replicated throughout the network and become the Supply Chain backbone for the company. Nine sites will be rolled- out over the next two years.
Rubbermaid initiated a project to standardize warehouse management operations across 8 of its North American locations. In addition to the system, Rubbermaid sought to establish new business processes based on best practices that would reduce inventory and lower operating costs.
