Flexible Logistics Solution Enables a High-Growth Company's Transition to Household Brand

Challenge: A high-growth food and beverage company needed a reliable, flexible distribution partner capable of managing explosive demand.

Solution: The company partnered with Kenco in 2007 for its direct-to-consumer U.S. distribution. Kenco began with a single operation in one of its Southeastern multi-client facilities capable of flexing. In 2009, Kenco opened another operation in its West Coast multi-client facility to reduce transit times and increase service levels. To facilitate distribution to multiple trade channels, including direct-to-consumer, Kenco opened a greenfield operation in the Northeast in 2011. Throughout this relationship, Kenco has implemented flexible solutions including warehousing (finished goods, overflow and manufacturing equipment), value added services, distribution, transportation, material handling equipment and real estate services.

Results: Over a five-year period, Kenco's solution grew from a 30k square-foot facility to 1.7M square feet across five facilities to absorb volumes fueled by a 70% average growth rate.

About the Solution Provider: Kenco provides integrated logistics solutions that include distribution and fulfillment, comprehensive transportation management, material handling services, real estate management, and information technology all engineered for operational excellence. Woman-owned and financially strong, Kenco has built lasting customer relationships for more than 60 years. Kenco's focus is on common sense solutions that drive uncommon value.
