After months of development and hard work, enVista’s beverage operations team is excited to unveil its new direct store delivery (DSD) system – Stack Sleeve. Stack Sleeve is a new and innovative solution for beverage companies that optimizes DSD operations. It is a complete solution that spans across the warehouse and delivery functions to allow the flexibility of delivering to both route and bulk customers from the same vehicle.
The system provides a method of batch picking and loading customer specific stacks and pallets in route stop sequence for delivery. The Stack Sleeve solution is comprised of warehouse/delivery equipment and software tools developed especially for DSD operations. By optimizing loads within the truck and reducing delivery times, Stack Sleeve can decrease the number of delivery vehicles beverage distributors need by 25 percent or more, reducing transportation costs and related labor requirements.
For years, enVista has been helping beverage companies optimize operations, but it was clear that there needed to be a better way to manage the distribution process. enVista Vice President of Operations Development Bob Grace led the way to develop a new system to bridge the productivity gaps in both warehouse and distribution operations. The end result is the Stack Sleeve, which offers innovative capabilities no other DSD system achieves.
enVista is pleased to unveil the Stack Sleeve, a new system that will radically change the way beverage companies deliver products to store.
