Case Study #4

    "This case study may leave you stumped"

      Did you know?  A tree survives and thrives by extracting the nutrients in the soil. Yet when a tree is harvested for lumber the stump is often left behind.  Our client has developed a way to harvest nutrients from unused or discarded tree stumps. These chemicals are used to make products that range from solvents and turpentine’s all the way to cosmetics, depending on how many times the liquid is run through their filtration system.

     When we were asked to help them with their supply-chain, we quickly identified two challenges. The first was to reduce expenses. The second was to ensure that their carriers were delivering their products more carefully. Safety is of the utmost importance in a chemical environment and can often be overlooked by carriers.
