International cosmetics brand streamlines Brazilian distribution with Penske Logistics

Challenge: A leading manufacturer of premium cosmetics and beauty products sought a new logistics model to meet its rapidly growing customer base in Brazil while reducing its carbon footprint.

Solution: Penske Logistics designed and implemented a healthcare-products certified distribution center in Brazil with responsibility for receiving, warehouse management and product invoicing. To ensure quality and compliance, Penske staffs the facility with a certified pharmacist technician.

Results: The distribution center's location reduces environmental impact due to a reduction in CO2 and other polluting gases by vehicles that were previously used to transport the products extremely long distances. Items now ship directly to the new distribution center. Orders are distributed to field sales consultants by a local carrier using fuel-efficient, lightweight vehicles.

About the Solution Provider: Penske Logistics engineers supply chain and logistics solutions that deliver powerful business results for market-leading companies. With offices in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, Penske can help meet your business needs by boosting efficiency and driving down costs in your supply chain.
