Building the Case for Outsourced Container Management

Darifair went looking for a partner to handle the container rental, transportation, cleaning, repair, and tracking services. Outsourcing these functions meant that their company could remain focused on driving their core business growth strategies.

Darifair® Foods: Building the Case for Outsourced Container Management

Challenge:

Darifair ships dairy blends and culinary products in Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to processors servicing national restaurant chains, retail outlets and food service distributors. When their previous IBC provider left the US market, Darifair needed a new long-term, reusable container provider. The company was looking for a solution that did not require them to purchase assets or become experts in container management. A few of Darifair’s specific project requirements included:

  • Partnering with a provider experienced in pooling reusable containers
  • Avoiding the use of capital on a non-core business function
  • Avoiding container fleet management
  • Ability to easily scale and adapt to new customers or changing product lines/volumes
  • Hygiene quality control
  • Ability to remain cost competitive

Bottom Line:

Working with a fully outsourced shipping container management solution provider was key for Darifair. Engaging a partner that would handle the container rental, transportation, cleaning, repair, and tracking services, while ensuring clean, quality containers on a scalable level was key to allowing the company to focus on its core business and drive growth.
