50 to Watch
We are very pleased and proud to announce that Paladin was named as one of the companies on the Spend Matters prestigious “50 to Watch” List. This is a very important endorsement from the largest blog in the Sourcing and Procurement industry.
Paladin Project Named One of 100 Great Supply Chain Projects
Paladin Associates’ USA Warehousing, Distribution and Transportation Project for Adisseo, a World Leader in nutrition and additives for animal feed, was named one of the 100 great supply chain projects by Supply and Demand Chain Executive.

Paladin analyzed current distribution and transportation costs and determined alternative distribution strategies and warehouse locations. 

  Incoming product shipments were directed to a single Southeastern US port.
  The main US warehouse was relocated near the selected incoming port.
  Carriers were consolidated, containers reduced, customer satisfaction improved and actual savings exceeded 25% of the prior total warehousing and transportation costs.
The Paladin project for Adisseo was completed by David DiSanto with analytical support from
Peter Key. Read the Press Release and a
