Dunavant Creates Custom Solution for International Heavy-Weight Shipments

Challenge: A $12 billion retail consumer goods company approached us in need of a cost-effective way to ship heavy-weight products from China. In addition, they wanted a complete review of their replenishment model to improve inventory turns and reduce safety stock.

Solution: Dunavant developed a client-specific program by utilizing their load planning optimization tool combined with their fleet of triple-axle chassis strategically positioned across the United States. This strategy provided an increased load cube and weight shipment matrix from under 34,000 lbs to over 43,000 lbs.

Results: The solution dramatically improved container-shipping capacities, thus reducing shipping costs. Inventories are now ordered in an on-demand basis rather than on container constraints criteria. Dunavant provided 24/7 logistics support at each touch point across multiple users, ensuring the objectives of the project were exceeded for all stakeholders.

About the Solution Provider: Based in Memphis, Tennessee with ten additional locations throughout the Southeast and Texas, Dunavant's focus is on providing logistics and transportation solutions in four main service verticals - global, freight, distribution, and consulting.
