Food Logistics 100
 
 
 

Supply Chain Optimizers is an independent management advisory firm which specializes in packaging optimization, a risk free offering where we are paid, on a gain sharing basis, for the savings we are able to generate for our clients.

We have delivered millions of dollars in annual savings for some of the leading global businesses. Our packaging optimization solutions have traditionally produced savings in the 10-20% range of the total supply chain cost and are especially effective for e-commerce shippers. Another result has been significant improvements in our clients’ sustainability, with dramatic reductions in packaging, trucks on the road, unused space in transport vehicles etc.

In addition, SCO has leading edge capability in international operations and lead logistics outsourcing which we have paired together to streamline northern border crossings between USA and Canada. The key strength of SCO is in the experience of our group to provide practical solutions. Virtually all of our staff have served extensively at the VP level in some facet of supply chain or financial operations.
