Dean Warehouse — one of New England’s largest warehousing, logistics and transportation companies — has announced the launch of a new division, Dean SupplyChain Management. The company says the new division creates customized solutions for any logistics and transportation need, coordinating and managing freight domestically and internationally.

DSM is a technology-based process providing real-time data intended to locate and centralize inventory within the logistics chain. DSM leverages the Dean Integration System, an online, RF-based tracking system designed to allow Dean’s customers to track their inventory throughout the supply-chain management system.

The Dean Integration System is more than 600 percent more effective in tracking product than traditional manual pick and pack, the company says, ensuring that the manufacturing process, warehousing, transportation and order fulfillment process are fully integrated. Whether providing long-haul transportation or securing warehouse space, DSM is designed to handle virtually any distribution challenge nationally or globally to produce measurable bottom-line results, the company says.

“The development of Dean SupplyChain Management allows us to specifically work with our clients that distribute products nationally and internationally,” says Brad A. Dean, chief executive officer of Cumberland, R.I.-based Dean Warehouse. “We help close the inventory loop by giving up-to-date information on the location of inventory while guaranteeing that the products will be transported in a timely, appropriate way. The efficiency we bring to the process helps our clients save on logistics costs.”

DSM currently works with clients in India, China, Europe and across the United States. Since the adoption of DSM, Dean Warehouse has added six major facilities across the nation — including locations in Lubbock, Texas; Cincinnati; Fresno, Calif.; Billings, Mont.; Long Beach, Calif.; and Miami — accounting for more than 500,000 square feet of warehousing space.
