"Innovative problem solving using analytical methods is the most 'in-demand' skill I hear about from our employer partners. Given the large base of manufacturers in Wisconsin, the WI Platform is a great example of the application of this skill in a context that is particularly relevant to the state." Jake Dean, Director, Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management, University of Wisconsin School of Business.

“The Wisconsin Platform provides Vollrath with greater control of import freight flows. By acting as our deconsolidation partner near the Chicago port, the WI Platform eliminates our concerns with container turns and dray shortages while allowing us to prioritize freight as needed. It lowers risk and increases our ability to come through for our stakeholders.”

Benjamin Andrews, Manager Int. Logistics & Customs Compliance, Vollrath 


Read What the Expert Panelists Wrote About the WI TEU C-Platform© 

“The Platform provides value by allowing me to manage from the tower. I also know that lean processes are being used to ensure that I get the same result time after time. My company uses the platform to unload floor loaded containers and palletize by PO and product type. The platform utilizes lean processes to ensure that the process designed is executed correctly each time. This saves our dock a lot of time in the receiving and put away process so we can turn those products around for sale. In the tight driver market, the platform operates as efficiently now as it did prior to the driver shortage. My containers are pulled from the rail ramp timely, avoiding any demurrage fees.” 

Andrew Houtz, Transportation Director, School Specialty

“The platform has allowed us to streamline our logistics process. We went from moving freight daily to a consolidated freight shipment once a week saving considerable time and expense also allowing us to focus on other areas lacking attention prior to us onboarding. It has been everything advertised to us and more.”

Kevin Brauer, Logistics Manager, BTG IPI, LLC
