Logistics Service Provider Highlights Process-Improvement CapabilitiesYOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (Mar. 1, 2011) — Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc. (CLI), a premier provider of engineered logistics services for complex supply chains, will showcase its highly efficient supply chain management and warehousing capabilities at the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) Annual Convention being held in St. Petersburg, Fla., Mar. 6-8, 2011.The theme for the IWLA 2011 Convention is “Innovation & Sustainability: Driving Best Practices in 3PLs,” and the event explores techniques for creating sustainable processes in warehousing operations. At CLI, process improvement is a core capability. The company constantly drives waste and variation out of the six fundamental warehousing processes—receive, store, pick, add value, package and ship—by cycling them through its Continuous Improvement Loop. As each core process becomes leaner and more refined, costs are significantly reduced, and the potential for nonconformance drops to near zero.As an agile third-party logistics (3PL) provider, CLI can modify one of more of these highly refined processes to create a custom service model designed to suit a company’s unique business requirements. This customized set of efficient processes integrates seamlessly as an extension of the company’s enterprise. As a result, CLI’s customers gain the flexibility, cost reduction and control they need to compete in today’s uncertain business environment.CLI’s supply chain management and warehousing capabilities include dedicated and multi-client warehousing; cross docking and flow-through execution; vendor-managed inventory; reusable container management; reverse logistics; consulting and engineering support; network optimization and real estate development; export processing and shipping; and strategic protection of inventory supply.
