C.H. ROBINSON/PATTERSON WAREHOUSES  RETAIL CONSOLIDATION PROGRAM

TOUR

The CHR Memphis Consolidation program began in the fall of 2005 in conjunction with Patterson Warehouses Inc. with the sole purpose of offering a solution to customers who shipped high volume LTL into Wal Mart DC’s.  Over time, the program grew and included a Target Consolidation program as well as offering solutions for larger LTL shipments and under-utilized truckloads.  In the spring of 2015, CHR became the preferred provider for all CVS LTL and consolidation opportunities.

The program offers a variety of value adds for CHR clients.  For the retail business, the main benefits are a reduction in charge backs due to all orders being managed to a strict delivery window, lowering damage claims due to lack of touches, and a faster turn into inventory due to live deliveries into the retail DC’s.  For general consolidation shipments, the program allows our clients to avoid volume penalties in an LTL scenario and avoid empty space on truckload shipments.   Other benefits include simple consolidation of orders to avoid multiple shipments to the same location, the ability to build pool points, and allowing flexibility within ship and delivery windows to better manage inventory costs.
