Agile supply chain solutions for an agrochemical leader
A leading agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology company wanted a cost-effective solution for the storage and distribution of its products. The company sought a 3PL partner who could act as an extension of its logistics department and quickly execute new supply chain strategies. The partner must demonstrate an understanding of the company’s operations, products, customers and carriers.
GXO was chosen to provide services for packaging, labeling and reverse logistics, using a blended solution of dedicated and public warehousing space. We transitioned the customer to a centralized distribution center model, eliminating the need for interplant shifting and excess product storage. As a trusted partner, we are the first 3PL allowed to be the final point of contact with the company’s customers.
