Ranked #1 for customer service, Home Chef is one of America’s leading meal kit delivery services with distribution centers in four cities. Rapidly expanding and with a fifth distribution center opening soon, they needed a logistics partner to help them scale their business and maintain their excellent service record.
Improving organization across multiple lines of business
Home Chef handled retail sales, online orders, and supplier management with operations relying heavily on manual email searches that would often miss key details. Due to their complexity, Home Chef needed a centralized TMS that would improve the organization and accessibility of information.
Ensuring a consistent customer experience while expanding
With four distribution centers and another opening soon, Home Chef aimed to move away from scattered Google Docs and other processes that hindered growth. For this, they needed a partner capable of enhancing visibility, ensuring sustainability, and maintaining a seamless customer experience.
Improving relationships with carriers for more favorable rates
Due to changing nature of meal kit distribution, Home Chef depended on the spot market for 40% of their freight. This had made establishing strong carrier relationships vital for cost control, as well as ensuring reliable, timely pickup and delivery of their time-sensitive shipments.
