Third-party logistics (3PL) provider Kenco Group announced that Interstate Batteries has selected Kenco as its partner for distribution and fulfillment center network operations. Kenco’s integrated supply chain solutions will help Interstate improve product availability, reduce operational complexity and enhance its partnerships with distributors, customers and suppliers, the company says.
Together, Interstate and Kenco will implement a new network of fulfillment centers, inclusive of warehousing, distribution services, project management, IT integrations and value-added services.
“By partnering with a tenured, innovative 3PL provider like Kenco, we are taking greater ownership of our supply chain, helping us provide even better service to our customers,” said Lain Hancock, chief operating officer for Interstate. “Our new network of fulfillment centers will reduce the number of distribution points our suppliers have to coordinate with from over 250 to just eight. This change will ultimately enable us to get products to distributors and customers faster.”
Kenco says its decades of 3PL distribution experience have helped it determine what tools businesses need to accelerate growth and outpace the competition. The company acts as an in-house logistics partner for its clients, working to provide innovative distribution strategies and solutions to solve complex logistics issues.
“Flexible and seamless fulfillment operations are table stakes in today’s fast-moving, always changing marketplace,” said David Caines, chief operating officer for Kenco. “Like us, Interstate Batteries is focused on strategic transformation, and it shows in their commitment to streamlining operations to achieve an even more efficient fulfillment process.”
