Raymond Receives 2018 SDCE 100 Award for Supply Chain Innovation
The Raymond Corporation is a proud recipient of a 2018 SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Award for its work with Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation.
The SDCE 100 is an annual list from Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) that spotlights successful and innovative projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions.
This year, SDCE recognized Raymond for its implementation of iWAREHOUSE® at NSLC’s distribution center. NSLC is especially proactive in protecting its biggest asset — its people. NSLC encourages all employees to take personal responsibility for themselves and the equipment they use to do their jobs. The telematics solution helped NSLC give mangers better insight into the operators’ daily activities along with more information that would allow them to make general warehouse decisions and improvements.
“Raymond delivers a world-class product that we’re now using to tap into the available data, helping gain better insights to support our people and our entire operation,” said Brad Doell, vice president of supply chain and procurement, NSLC.
After iWAREHOUSE was implemented, managers noticed an immediate change in employee behavior. Operators liked knowing the equipment was up to date on maintenance and would perform well. In addition, managers were better equipped to provide a comfortable operating environment for their employees and machines with a clear picture of exactly what was happening in the warehouse.
“Our work with the NSLC further proves our continued commitment to innovation, quality and service,” says Michael Field, CEO, Raymond. “We are honored to be included on the SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain projects list and we hope that iWAREHOUSE will continue to help customers like NSLC improve their operations to work more effectively and efficiently.”
