How one company used supply chain expertise to energize sales.

Challenge:

One manufacturer typically shipped its refrigeration units by LTL from Mexico to the United States. When the company made its first sale of 350 refrigeration units to a global beverage distributor, they knew they could grow their business even faster—if they could efficiently deliver the units from a plant in Mexico to 7 states, from Florida to Hawaii.

Solution:

The company worked with our truckload, special handling, customs, and warehousing teams. Together, we shipped units by the full truckload to a Texas distribution center and staged them at regional warehouses. Our two-person teams joined the company’s representatives onsite as the units were delivered, unpacked, and installed. Through it all, our Navisphere® global technology platform provided visibility and tracking of every shipment for the company and its customers.
