Strategic Outsourcing and DC Design – Making Choices for Success
Maple Leaf Foods is the largest foods processor in Canada. At the front end of a multi-year transformation plan for its manufacturing and distribution footprint, the company required a consolidated DC plan (moving 6 to 1) or an outsourced solution that would achieve their planned goals of consolidated distribution. To determine the most effective direction, Maple Leaf enlisted the help of SCA.
How we solved it:
- Education and Knowledge.SCA worked directly with the Maple Leaf’s senior management to educate the company about outsourcing distribution operations.
- Process Organization.SCA led the outsourcing process by developing the business requirements, pricing approach and RFP process implementing an initial RFI and then shortlisting candidates.
- Design and Development.We provided the 3PL with a consolidated design and MH approach designed and developed by SCA for the new facility.
