The Raymond Corporation is pleased to announce it is a recipient of the 2022 Supply and Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) Top Supply Chain Projects award for the services Malin, a Raymond Solutions and Support Center, completed for Crossroads Community Services. The Top Supply Chain Projects award (formerly known as SDCE 100) spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium, and large enterprises across a range of supply chain functions.
This year, SDCE recognized Raymond for its partnership with Crossroads Community Services, a food pantry focused on alleviating food insecurity in the southern sector of Dallas County and Ellis and Navarro counties. Raymond helped Crossroads Community Services to learn to ship and receive best practices; maximize efficient use of additional warehouse space and inventory control, and safely and fully utilize all the benefits of its new distribution facility. By practicing Raymond Lean Management (RLM) principles, Crossroads Community Services was able to optimize its order picking process, donation center methods, and shopping experience as well as increase capacity in its new warehouse facility.
RLM procedures and techniques are based on the world-renowned Toyota Production System, which focuses on waste reduction through visualization, standardized work, target-based key performance indicators and continuous improvement activities to provide the best possible solutions. When applied correctly, RLM can significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of processes to help satisfy customers’ needs.
