The National DCP LLC (NDCP), the distribution and purchasing cooperative for Baskin Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts outlets, has selected Transplace as its third-party logistics (3PL) provider to efficiently manage inbound shipments to distribution centers throughout the United States.
Transplace’s Transportation Management System (TMS) will provide inbound shipment lifecycle visibility, reduce direct transportation costs, and improve overall operational efficiencies for NDCP. In addition, Transplace brings domain expertise in cooperative business to NDCP, along with on-demand supply chain visibility, providing transparency for day-to-day operations decisions.
“While our outbound program has done very well and will remain in place, we wanted the same type of success when managing deliveries from suppliers to our distribution centers. National DCP wanted the best choice for a partner that provided subject matter expertise along with innovation, and discovered that these qualities are resident in Transplace,” said Kevin Bruce, NDCP chief executive officer.
NDCP provides distribution services for more than 7,000 Baskin Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the United States, by managing delivery from hundreds of suppliers to seven distribution centers across the nation.
In the past several years, Transplace has invested heavily in Lean Six Sigma education and execution along with business intelligence tools and reports for customers. The web-based portal allows users to produce standard and custom reports on demand or on a scheduled basis to generate insight and greater visibility into transportation operations in real-time or historically to identify trends.
Bellingham MA-based NDCP is a member-owned supply chain cooperative owned by Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees.
