Adama Case Study
- January 11, 2017
When asked by ADAMA Agricultural Solutions, one of the leading manufacturers of crop protection solutions in the U.S., to analyze their domestic supply chain movements for products leaving their new Tifton, GA plant, we put our knowledge of the agricultural chemical industry to work.
After much deliberation, it was concluded that Outsource Logistics could provide a local warehousing hub to support the plant operations by utilizing a multi-faceted approach. By literally warehousing 2 miles from their plant, we could provide just in time inventory to keep their plant processes running efficiently while eliminating inventory that was taking up their valuable production space.
It was also concluded that by providing a local “landing pad” for their finished products, we could not only provide exceptional service to their customers in the Southeast, but also delay shipping to other regional distribution centers until sales forecasts warranted the movement. We also provide dedicated daily shuttles between our warehouses and the plant through our Dedicated Fleet Services division to keep transfers running smoothly. A truly great partnership was born!
