    In order to keep their customers and employees safe, it was necessary for facilities were required to install new shields and distribute personal protective equipment (PPE). There are multiple companies offering these kinds of materials, but with the high global demand for these supplies, transportation and delivery services have become vital.

     

    One of our customers needed to orchestrate the distribution of Sneeze Guards to a national client with multiple, dispersed locations which required short transit times in order for them to re-open their stores. GEODIS | Supply Chain Optimization and our White Glove Complex Delivery team offered a solution that consisted of a 2-3 day transit using a series of suppliers with nationwide coverage. As last minute manufacturing changes arose, we adapted and offered expedited Air/Ground solutions as needed. The schedule and delivery priority was created based on individual state government reopening plans. With a skilled delivery team deployed nationwide by the client on a tightly orchestrated schedule, on time delivery was a top priority.

     

    In only two and a half weeks, we achieved a 100% on time delivery of 35,000 barriers, with the potential to expand the scope to more of our customer's clients all over the US.
