DynCorp International Supply Chain Team Recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine as 2012 “Pros to Know”

The DynCorp International Supply Chain Team has been awarded the 2012 “Pros to Know” award by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.

Falls Church, VA, March 11, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine is recognizing the DynCorp International Supply Chain team in its 2012 “Pros to Know” issue.

Awarded to supply chain executives from both manufacturing and non-manufacturing corporations, this award recognizes those leading the way to prepare their supply chain groups to meet the substantial challenges of the modern business climate. In many cases, a strong supply chain can be the difference between success and failure in today’s “new normal.”

Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, spoke about the winners saying, “Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for supply chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year’s Provider Pros listing.”

The DynCorp International Supply Chain team continues to play a vital role in helping the company achieve its corporate objectives which include protecting core business, delivering new competencies to existing customers, and supplying existing capabilities to new customers.

Established in 2011, the supply chain team now works around a centralized Supply Chain Center of Excellence for sourcing and logistics. Using cost analytics and e-Sourcing tools have also helped by improving efficiency, increasing targeted sourcing, and leveraging cost-savings for both DI and its customers.

New DI Quality Consolidation Centers (QCC) in Coppell, TX and Dubai will receive, inspect, and ship all materials to global destinations, providing improvements in quality control, supplier management and time-savings.

For example, once each order is inspected for quality, quantity and condition, it will be re-packaged in a way that ensures lowest onward shipping costs. U.S. materials will be labeled with all required information for entry into the automated inventory system. Any U.S. government property will also be checked, tagged and entered with correct serial numbers and coding.

Along with these process improvements, DI has standardized more of its supply chain systems, assigned new team roles, and used training to improve team-member skills and competencies.

DynCorp International can now better manage the almost 19 million tons of materials it receives annually on behalf of customers and to ultimately reduce costs across all customer operations.
