Special Labeling, Packaging, POS Display Assembly, Kitting?
That's the easy stuff.
We know our business. Since 1964, LaGROU has been one of the most trusted names in the food, beverage and food ingredient business. We listen to our customers, we learn what our customers need, we anticipate what they will need and provide solutions.
Our solutions are flexible warehousing and transportation packages that encompass a wide range of conventional warehousing and trucking along with some creative and unconventional solutions to logistics challenges. We customize each operation to provide not only the required services but design in the flexibility to adapt to change.
As an example, a client contacted us advising he had 30,000 automotive component parts in need of sorting. Through a miscommunication with an overseas vendor, various component sub-assembly parts had been mixed in master cartons and rejected by his customer. In jeopardy of causing a big 3 automaker’s line shutdown and corresponding penalties they looked to LaGROU for a solution. Absent of any part number and appearing nearly identical, there were subtle dimensional differences not visible to the untrained eye. We trained our employees’ eyes with planograms, equipped them with locally fabricated go/no-go gauges for dimensional checks and white gloves for fingerprint free handling. We inspected, sorted and averted the crisis. Further, we provided daily status reports of completion and quantity and mixed/non-conforming parts. We bundled our trucking, warehousing and inspection services into a flexible operation that met all the delivery schedules on a JIT basis.
The entire project was completed within 5 days of the initial contact!
