Orefield Cold Storage (OCS Logistics) has improved its distribution operations with RedPrairie Warehouse Management. OCS Logistics implemented the system to meet the needs of its logistics service customers. It installed the RedPrairie system initially for its customer Dannon and has since rolled it out to all its customers.

The RedPrairie system replaced a paper-based system that could not provide real-time data into inventory. Dannon's temperature-controlled goods have a short shelf life, and product freshness is important to the company. With the RedPrairie system, Dannon has real-time visibility into inventory status — including inbound receipts and outbound shipments. This ensures that fresh product is shipped to retailers and into the hands of consumers.

Founded in 1989, OCS Logistics provides climate-controlled and dry product handling throughout the United States. LTL and TL transportation services securely and efficiently move product across the nation, and the company offers a dedicated fleet to handle store door deliveries. OCS Logistics' sister company, OCS Transport, has a company-owned fleet of 50 tractors and 100 climate-controlled trailers.
