Menlo Worldwide Logistics Recognized By Diebold For Outstanding Service Performance

Stocks in this article: CNW

SAN FRANCISCO and NORTH CANTON, Ohio, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Innovative solutions to complex supply chain problems and the application of Lean tools and methodologies to improve processes and remove waste has garnered Menlo Worldwide Logistics a prestigious award from Diebold, Incorporated as a top-performing logistics services provider.


Diebold recently conferred upon Menlo its Silver Certification designation, recognizing the company for innovation, cost savings and value delivered in support of Diebold's cost alignment strategies.

Menlo, the global logistics and supply chain management unit of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), has been a Diebold global supply chain partner since 2007. Today, Menlo provides Diebold with strategic 4PL supply chain engineering and network optimization, as well as functional, day-to-day third party logistics (3PL) services. Among the services provided are global transportation procurement and management, with a global "control tower" operation in Auburn Hills, Mich., complemented by regional control centers in Budapest, Hungary and Shanghai that direct local and inter-regional transportation activities in those geographies.

Traditional 3PL services include warehouse design, management and fulfillment, with Menlo operating a Diebold-dedicated warehouse in the United States that supports assembly, staging and distribution of finished products as well as component materials to Diebold plants globally.

"Menlo provides Diebold with comprehensive solutions that meet our needs for strategic and tactical supply chain operations support, on a global basis," said Linda Parcher, vice president and chief supply chain officer at Diebold. "During the past six years, through Menlo's leadership applying Lean continuous improvement methods, we have realized substantial improvements in our supply chain operating systems, as well as design and process innovations that have elevated supply chain performance."

Menlo's global footprint and process expertise, when coupled with its standardized Lean methods worldwide, local market knowledge and industry insight, provides rapid value delivery and a proven roadmap for continuous supply chain performance improvement – which directly benefits Diebold and other global clients, noted Robert L. Bianco, Jr., president, Menlo Worldwide Logistics.

"The most difficult task for a logistics provider is demonstrating, year in and year out, the rigor and discipline to examine the solutions we provide to customers, and then re-engineer them in a structured, continuous effort to improve and renew the value," Bianco said. "I am most proud of this honor from Diebold because it recognizes that even after six years of hard work, collaborative and constructive change, our team is still innovating, and applying our Lean tools to find new opportunities to create value and reduce costs."
