As President of BDS, it is my pleasure to invite you to view our site and be introduced to our company and the supply chain solutions we provide to our valued customers. Please take a moment to view aerial photographs of our Augusta, Georgia operating locations and our new BDS Pipe Yard & Distribution Center in Houston, Texas. Under our services tab, we talk about the variety of logistics services we offer and feature a description of the rail support services we provide at our 437,500 square foot shared space facility located directly across from Norfolk Southern’s South Augusta Yard.
Under our Technology tab, we introduce the implementation of RedPrairie On-Demand as our new Warehouse Management system. RedPrairie’s entry into the SAAS market or cloud delivery model, afforded us the best in class functionality they are known for along with the ability to seamlessly scale to meet demand spikes of our customers. We are all very excited about this upgrade in our information technology offerings.
When you read "about us" please take a few minutes to learn about our "Driving Force" and the importance BDS places on our people. I am extremely proud of our Bennett team and the leadership group that directs our logistics operations.
I am particularly proud of our "Leader of the Year", David Herndon, featured receiving his richly deserved recognition along with my personal thanks for a "JOB WELL DONE" in 2010!
In 2010, Dave was able to translate management’s vision and direction into action and measurable positive results on a daily basis. He organized the daily work schedules to meet each customer’s needs for inbound receipts, outbound orders and shuttle transfers to ensure customer satisfaction, across the board. He constantly mentored new employees and veteran operators, alike, to deliver accurate, damage-free, handling of each customer’s freight on the heaviest volume days. In the process, Dave consistently kept management informed with concise, accurate reports that enabled the sales effort to produce the increased volume objectives required to fill the facility with revenue producing inventory.
Throughout this process Dave maintained a contagious positive attitude that consistently motivated the workforce he led. Leading from the front, he worked long hours to ensure the high level of operational performance he demands was maintained. Regardless of the size of the challenge, he always got the job done.
