Top 100 Logistics Firm Teams With Leading CPG Company to Stimulate Bottom Line Results

By George Kokoris · January 31, 2013

A leading division of the Top-Ten companies in Fortune magazine’s internationally-recognized Fortune 500 list faced a challenge.

As one of the world’s most respected Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies, customers held the company to the expectation that their products would not only be of the highest quality, but delivered efficiently and on time. The customer faced significant logistics challenges, however, and had seen mixed results prior to partnering with LEGACY Supply Chain Services. The decision to team with LEGACY was driven primarily by service concerns and the inability of previous logistics providers to bring the operation to a higher level through continued improvements, year after year.

With LEGACY at the helm of their logistics operations, this company was given the opportunity to focus on their core competencies, which resulted in a continuous increase in bottomline results. The partnership with LEGACY allowed the Top-Ten company to enforce previously-neglected policies and standards, which ultimately reversed their initial drop of productivity. Daily and weekly meetings were conducted as collaborative problem-solving sessions with open discussions about possible complications and concerns. This allowed both LEGACY and the customer to make the necessary adjustments to ensure that a solvable issue never became an irreversible problem.
