Efficiencies, Accuracy, Success

"We work to continuously improve your warehousing operations, we look for unique storage methods,we find better ways of product handling, follow best practices, and look for investment opportunities that will lead to improvements and savings."

-Dan Harmon VP of Operations

Discovering Your Potential

Information exchange is vital to uncovering – and understanding – all the variables that affect the movement of your product. That’s why the first step in the LeSaint Logistics 360Logic™ process is the Discover Process.

Explore the Discover Process

During this critical phase, we discuss, probe and question in order to capture a true, complete picture of your warehouse and inventory needs – as well as the transportation requirements that support efficient delivery. Every aspect of your supply will be analyzed including:

  • Sourcing of product
  • Sales channels
  • Customer requirements
  • Warehouse demands
  • Inventory profile
  • Transportation
  • Technologies
  • Value-added services
warehousing solutions

We Build Your Unique Customer Profile

Through this analysis, we build a thorough Customer Profile that identifies the specific demands of your current as well as future supply chain program and allows us to move forward to create solutions.

Product Sourcing

Whether your raw materials are brought in by sea, rail or truck, LeSaint looks at the most efficient and cost-effective method of bringing them into a production facility and maximizing efficiencies in both product touch and transportation.

Sales Channel Alignment

Understanding the demands on the timing and delivery of your products allows us to strategically structure your product movement and optimize how it is managed, controlled and shipped.

Warehouse Structuring

We analyze your current product footprints to uncover how well your current demands are being met and address any issues with insufficient warehouse space, seasonal fluctuations, and new market needs.

Inventory Profiling

We investigate all areas of your inventory to assess reporting and tracking requirements – from number of SKUs and turns per year to how inventory is received and what type of storage density is expected.

Scope Determination

Determining headcounts, staffing and footprint requirements starts with detailed insight into core issues such as demand for kitting or repackaging, how orders are filled, and the impact of season cycles.

Transportation Fulfillment

What are your distribution requirements? Are product shipments national or regional? What modes of transportation and service levels are required? By focusing on the best economies of scale, we can better help you meet customer demands.

Technology Integration

We explore your technology capabilities to find the best solutions for enhancing real-time inventory management and transportation tracking, from plugging into our software solutions to improving the integration of your own technologies.

Value Added

We think beyond the delivery and housing of products to determine if there are other services that can save you time and money – and uncover novel ways to create the best supply chain program.

Creating Your Plan

During the Create Process of the LeSaint 360Logic™ process, we explore and identify each activity and management initiative that will ultimately lead to a smooth, efficient product flow through every stage of your supply chain.

The Building Blocks

Product Flow Mapping

This establishes a baseline for your logistics plan, and unifies expectations for what the plan needs to achieve.



Comprehensive Supply Chain Analysis

LeSaint's internal operations management conducts in-depth discussions on all stages of your supply chain and develops best case solutions and scenarios.

Alignment of Supply Chain Points

All supply chain points must work in concert to ensure a smooth flow of product. The LeSaint team analyzes the details of every major supply point and begins to connect each point of the solution.

Technology Needs Analysis

Once all product flow is mapped, information technology needs are determined so that all processes can be streamlined and supported with real-time accountability and visibility.
