Consolidation with single logistics partner helps wine maker reduce costs, product damage.
A global wine producer was experiencing excessive product handling and high damage rates due to its use of multiple partners for warehousing, packaging and transportation. In 2003, the manufacturer integrated these services with KANE for East Region distribution from a 350,000-square-foot, bonded distribution center in Pennsylvania. KANE now manages all distribution services, as well as administration of required tax payments in each state in the distribution area. The integrated solution helped to reduce transportation costs and damage rates. KANE’s facility is consistently ranked among the top distribution centers in the company’s extensive DC network.
