The Thermoset Resins Division of Interplastic Corporation, a leading manufacturer of unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, specialty resins, gel coats and colorants for the composites, cast polymer and solid surface industries, has awarded the dedicated contract carriage contract for three of its locations to Distribution Technologies Inc (DistTech), Newbury OH.
DistTech is now directing all fleet transportation activities for Interplastic in Hawthorne CA, Kent WA, and Pryor OK, including shipment planning and scheduling and delivery confirmation.
DistTech is also measuring and tracking Interplastic's key performance indicators (KPIs), including on-time pickups and deliveries and delivered cost per pound.
DistTech's dedicated drivers operate specialized single- and multi-compartment trailers to transport raw materials to the three Interplastic facilities as well as finished product to customers throughout the continental United States.
Satellite communications enables DistTech drivers to send Interplastic an immediate delivery confirmation for every shipment. DistTech can pinpoint the location of any truck in its fleet using satellite tracking so that Interplastic always knows the status of every shipment.
