DSC accelerates implementation of innovative technology in 2019

CIO Kevin Glynn and Mary Wyderski, Senior Director, Business Applications, recently met with CJ Logistics technology leaders in Seoul, South Korea, to discuss new WMS technology and TES (Technology, Engineering, Systems & Solutions) applications to be implemented across various DSC locations and customer networks over the next two years.

The technology they saw in action during their tour of CJ’s TES Innovation Center included automated conveyors for sorting and managing parcels, autonomous vehicles (AGVs) such as tugs and forklifts, and transportation network routing software.

“Implementations of new technology will be customer-focused and it will be a collaborative process,” Kevin said. “Everything we are doing has our customers’ business goals in mind.”

Accelerating the company’s transformation strategy to deliver customer value in new and expanded ways, DSC joined with CJ Logistics in 2018 with a focus on integrated global supply chain innovation. Kevin and Mary are enthusiastic about bringing TES applications to customers in the US. “We look forward to cooperative development of technology and these projects have the capability to provide significant improvements to operational efficiency,” Kevin said. “We’re excited to begin sharing these advancements with customers quickly too; first implementations will begin as early as this year.”
