RightChain Chemicals and Commodities Results

RightChain implementations simultaneously increase revenue, reduce expenses and reduce capital charges. The overall result is higher gross margins, higher profitability, and higher return on capital investment.
 
In supply chain terms, revenue increases via higher fill rates and optimized store delivery frequencies and timing. Expenses are lowered via optimized transportation, warehousing, and sourcing. Supply chain capital charges are decreased via optimized inventory levels, optimized logistics infrastructure designs, and optimized rates.

Historically RightChain implementations yield the following range of results.
1. Lower Inventory (9% to 36%)
2. Higher Fill Rates (2 to 7 points)
3. Lower Supply Chain Costs (8% to 23%)
4. Faster Retail Response Times (1 to 3 days)

RightChain Chemicals and Commodities Operations Designs

RightChain's Dr. Ed Frazelle is the author of World-Class Warehousing, the world's best selling book on warehouse design and operations. The book's principles, practices, and optimizations are the guiding forces for hundreds of warehousing and distribution operations world-wide. Many of those are devoted to warehousing and distributing chemicals, plastics and commodities. Several of those designs crafted by RightChain are highlighted in the facilities below.
