SC Johnson Case Study

Modern, innovative SEVESO logistics that comply with individual requirements.

Opportunity

A leader in the highly competitive home hygiene market, SC Johnson requires accurate order preparation and responsive transport planning integrated with value-added services. The company sought a logistics provider with deep experience in managing SEVESO-compliant warehouses for aerosol and liquid storage of hazardous goods. Rigorous cost control and stock management were also requirements; the stock must be managed to ensure availability, reduce inventory levels and optimise deliveries.

Solution

XPO Logistics has implemented value-added services for SC Johnson in modern Seveso II shared warehouses in France and in Italy. These two XPO facilities include semi-automated co-packing lines and flexible processes that comply with individual retailer requirements for order preparation. We also dedicated a team to SC Johnson to manage full truckload and less-than-truckload deliveries. Approximately 60% of flows involve fewer than 10 pallets — and sometimes only a single pallet. Deliveries to retailer networks are guaranteed by appointment, and we handle returns.

Results

XPO has extensive expertise in solving logistics challenges for manufacturers and retailers within the constraints of a SEVESO environment. For SC Johnson, our order preparation quality rate routinely runs close to 100% and we ensure next-day and three-day deliveries by appointment, tracking shipments and PODs online. In addition to these efficiencies and strict quality control, SC Johnson values our commitment to a lower environmental impact.
