There are things everyone hates about their jobs, but there are also things that everyone loves. Let me share with you what gets me fired up about DCL. As a supply chain service provider in Silicon Valley, DCL is located at the heart of global innovation. We are at the center of some of the greatest technological minds and the venture capitalists that fund their creations.
What this means is that there is no shortage of leading technology companies, some globally recognizable, that have leaned on DCL for operational advisory and execution. Whether it’s convincing and eventually helping execute a global GPS brand from moving from in-house fulfillment to outsourcing fulfillment to DCL, or seeing a now booming green-tech startup go from their garage to high level distribution through DCL, it’s cool to not only see the great technology and products in person, but even cooler when you are able to create operational solutions that help take their companies to the next level. The list of my favorite products from DCL customers is lengthy, but I can’t reveal much detail…I have competition reading this blog.
If you would of asked me a year ago, I would of said “hype”. But just as I jumped on the “We Believe” bandwagon of the Golden State Warriors epic playoff run a couple years ago, I would put even more money that “Green Consciousness” has far greater staying power than my beloved Warriors (thanks for screwing it up Nelson!). Green Fulfillment is now reality and figures to be even more prominent shortly. What do I mean by Green Fulfillment? Green Fulfillment is not about shipping green products, but more about a state of mind, a state of consciousness, and about companies associating their brands with everything Green. By being more Green in the supply chain, companies can inherently create “value” for their brands, which means more $$$ in the long term.
As companies examine their supply chain and fulfillment needs, they are increasingly looking for companies with a Green state of mind . DCL has taken steps towards meeting these expectations. We recently completed the second installation of our Solar panels on the rooftop of our Fremont facility and a larger percentage of our packaging is now recycled materials.
