DHL Supply Chain will be able to increase efficiencies in Doosan’s supply chain
DHL Supply Chain, the Americas leader in contract logistics and part of DPDHL Group, and Doosan Infracore North America, a manufacturer of heavy construction equipment, announce the launch of a new warehouse operation that begins full receiving and shipping today as a result of a new partnership between the two companies. The new distribution network will ship over 190,000 lines to service Doosan’s aftermarket requirements throughout the United States and Canada. DHL Supply Chain now provides warehousing and outbound less than load (LTL) transportation to the entire network of Doosan Infracore North America dealers.
The expansion for Doosan follows an increase in demand from key markets and the company’s desire to improve order visibility for its supply chain managers and its customers. To do this, the new warehouse will employ DHL Supply Chain’s programs such as Operations Management Systems, Customer Service and Transport Management.
“Working with DHL Supply Chain allows us to reduce our order cycle times to ensure our customers are receiving critical replacement parts quickly and efficiently,” said Clay Caldwell, Director or Parts and Sales Support, Doosan Infracore North America. “We’re excited to work with a partner that not only understands our business and markets but has the capabilities to provide strategic warehousing options and seamless transportation integration.”
DHL Supply Chain will begin receiving and shipping out of the Georgia warehouse in December 2018.
“As a global logistics expert, we understand how crucial customer centricity is to our clients. Therefore DHL Supply Chain embraces any opportunity to share its expertise with industry players and support them in delivering even better services to their dealers and purchasers network, which is exactly what we will do with Doosan in servicing their dealers,” said Brian Miller, Senior Director, Customer and Solution Development. “As we evolve from their current network distribution strategy and add this new facility, we will be able to increase efficiencies in the Doosan supply chain from end-to-end and link growing markets.”
