Winery Partners with KANE to Shorten Cycle Times

Challenge: A major winery was distributing all its wine products from its California location. This resulted in 7-day to 21-day delivery cycles to its customers - 500 U.S. wine distributors. The company, and its independent logistics services subsidiary, wanted to shorten this cycle and chose Kane Is Able, Inc. to be its Northeast logistics partner.

Solution: Wine is a very heavy and expensive product to ship. To control transportation costs, the company elected to leverage rail service for cross-country moves. KANE facilitates this strategy with a rail-served facility in Scranton, PA that processes 50 cars per week. Often, arriving product moves directly from rail cars to waiting trailers to reduce inventory and speed distribution.

Results: Using a regional distribution model leveraging rail in the Northeast, the winery has gone from a 2-3 week order-to-delivery cycle to 2 days.

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, contract packaging, and transportation services specially designed to meet the needs of CPG manufacturers.
