Saving a Customer's Supply Chain​ (Case Study)

When a long-established and well-known manufacturer faced a supply shortage due to their consumables supplier ceasing operations, we had 6 weeks to provide a seamless switchover to the full supply of over 1600 consumable products, to multiple locations.

We performed a full audit of their current products and tailored a portfolio of straight switches and recommendations for alternatives to improve efficiencies.

The result? A seamless transition to the supply of all the 1600 SKUs in six weeks across 41 locations and 2 sites, as well as successful implementation of the DTC Hub, providing easy access to reporting and stock control.

“We selected DTC as our new VMI vendor due to their demonstrated value for money and their ability to scale up quickly. We have been very pleased with the service received by DTC so far, they are always responsive to any issues and resolve them promptly.”
