Value Added Logistics Services

In order meet the ever-changing demands in supply chain management, our third-party logistics company has implemented several vital improvements in the way we do business with current customers. CI, or Continuous Improvement is, by definition, an ongoing effort to improve products, services or processes. These efforts can take the form of incremental improvements over time, or breakthrough improvements which have an effect immediately.Value Added 3PL Company Services

The process has not been a short one. United Facilities, Inc. is over 50 years old and has seen tremendous change during that time. Our 3PL company has always been capable of identifying issues and making positive changes. The CI mindset has allowed the company to be more focused on solving long-term issues than ever before.

The principles of CI are:

  • identify
  • analyze
  • measure
  • improve
  • evaluate

Our third-party logistics company uses these principles to efficiently increase customers' profits as well as to achieve the company's own corporate goals and objectives. The implementation of CI in all of our facilities has helped change the culture and thinking processes, even in the minds of the hourly employees. The attitudes of all employees, from the bottom to the top, have changed dramatically and had a monumental impact on the efficiency of operations.

As evidence of our success, United Facilities was recently recognized by one of our largest customers (a Fortune 100 food company) as the CI "Champions of the Year". This recognition came after we were able to save the company over $2.1-million in one year, which was validated by the customer as true bottom-line savings.
