Case Study BBW

Origin:

San Diego, CA

Destination:

All points USA

Objective:

Deliver holiday displays to 1500 U.S stores on two unique business days, inside mall deliveries. Deliveries were date and time critical that delivered on one of two Sunday evenings, within a 4 hour window.

SOLUTION:

We worked with 250 plus service vendors to cover line haul and final mile deliveries. A detailed project plan was developed and communicated across our provider network. Training documents along with specific operating parameters were defined and communicated both in written and conference call formats to ensure all members of the team had the same marching orders. Over 700 delivery teams took part in the project and operated with minimal issue or disruption to the plan

The size and scope ( along with the specific delivery parameters ) was unprecedented and required a large team to work together in unison. All of the moving parts ( line haul, final mile, control tower staffing, warehousing, store management ) had to be in sync with the project plan at the right time, the interdependencies were many and tightly woven within the project plan.

The store locations went beyond the major demographic areas and required additional coverage, oversight and management to fit into the plan. The remote locations offered the largest opportunity for issue resolution and the team was prepared with contingencies. As with the major demographic areas, minimal issues occurred and were resolved quickly without incident.

The request was next to impossible yet with extensive planning, stellar communication, constant follow up and open channels of communication the project was a monumental success.
