-Integrated Supply Chain Leader, Dow Building Solutions
Carrier, a world leader in heating, air conditioning and refrigeration solutions, needed a logistics partner to distribute its fast-growing line of ductless air conditioners into the Western U.S. KANE established a large-scale distribution operation from within its Southern California distribution campus in the Inland Empire. In addition to standard warehousing and distribution services, this industrial logistics solution includes tight serial number tracking and product customization on the warehouse floor.
The solution has improved service to Carrier’s West Region customers and provided the company with a flexible warehousing solution that can expand and contract with seasonal volumes.
Dow Building Solutions is a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company. The characteristics of the company’s insulation product allow much of it to be stored outdoors. For that reason, the company sought a logistics partner that could provide an economical outdoor storage solution, and one that was close to a Northeast region intermodal ramp, since the product would be shipped in via rail. KANE’s Scranton, PA campus fit the bill since part of its 225-acre campus is less than two miles from a Norfolk Southern-operated intermodal terminal. The partnership helps Dow gain the economic and sustainability advantages of rail transportation, while still moving a high volume of product to market very quickly.
KANE provides full supply chain support for industrial products, from raw material storage and lineside delivery to management of aftermarket parts to minimize downtime on critical machinery. We are experts in the things that matter most to you:
