Case study

Supply chain continuity for a chemical company facing disruption

Opportunity

A United States chemical company was facing a dilemma. One of its key business partners was planning to relocate manufacturing operations overseas — a move that would cause a significant shift in the customer’s supply chain. The customer’s formulas, which were currently blended domestically, would be blended abroad and then shipped to the US for packaging and distribution. 

Solution

GXO created the technologies needed for blending, filling and packaging, keeping raw materials within the United States. This enabled our customer to move operations to a region they had previously identified as a strategic location for distribution. We helped the customer obtain EPA certification for the new facility, where our team runs multiple lines — filling bottles ranging from six ounces to several gallons. We also perform secondary packaging, including multipacks, shrink-wrapping and banding, kitting, bagging, overwrapping, prepacks and clamshells. An on-site laboratory ensures the right amount of active ingredients in each mixture.

Results

  • Manage the only true end-to-end energy logistics solution within this customer’s supply chain
  • Consolidated multiple distribution centers into a strategic regional hub
  • Successfully transitioned existing product to new operations
  • Launched a new line of herbicide product
  • On-site transportation department that handles customer requests 24/7
