LeanCor's Director of Account Management for LeanCor Logistics, Ashley Yentz, was featured in Furniture Today Magazine for its Feb 20 logistics article entitled “Managing pinch points: Industry watches for bottlenecks in furniture’s long supply chain.”
In the article, she discusses how LeanCor uses milk runs as a means for utilizing carrier capacity.
"In one instance, we saw a company increase its suppliers' weekly delivery frequency by 81% and lower (distribution center) on-hand inventory by 37% as a result," said Yentz. "On the outbound-to-retail side, increasing store delivery frequency by 147% lowered on-hand inventory by 53%. Overall the total logistics cost was reduced by more than $500K in just two years."
