Club Store Partners with KANE to Operate High-Velocity Cross-Dock

Challenge: A major U.S. club store chain runs a high-velocity network of cross dock facilities. Kane Is Able was chosen to operate the retailer's first, and largest, cross dock center serving the Northeast.

Solution: Key components of the solution: Case pick operations replenish less-than-pallet quantity orders. KANE handles this labor-intensive process at the cross dock and sends consolidated, mixed vendor pallets to the store to reduce local labor; Store-level quality checks eliminated. KANE's initial quality check at the cross dock proved so accurate that the retailer decided to eliminate this step at the store, saving $14 million across its network.; Bar code speeds store-level receiving. Prior to shipment, KANE generates a bar code label that affixes a dollar amount to the load and, upon receipt, the information downloads into the stores local inventory system.

Results: KANE has received the retailer's Distribution Center of the Year award 9 times.

About the Solution Provider: Kane Is Able is a third party logistics provider that helps consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies warehouse and distribute goods throughout the U.S. KANE's CPG logistics solutions include integrated warehousing, packaging, and transportation services specially designed to meet the needs of CPG manufacturers.
