CRST Sets the Stage for Interior Design Company’s 300 Remodels

Specialized Solutions

From hotel rooms and lobbies to sorority houses and retirement homes, CRST Specialized Solutions created a picture-perfect logistics plan to support an interior design company’s remodeling plan. With more than 300 project locations, the project plan was successfully executed according to schedule.

A Large Scale Challenge

The customer, a prestigious interior design firm, needed a distribution partner to create and successfully execute a logistics plan. The plan would efficiently meet all their project milestones to remodel or set up model rooms at locations across the country, including apartments, sorority houses, retirement homes, hotel lobbies. The customer needed a partner to manage the entire process while meeting their required schedule.

In addition, the customer required support to receive and consolidate products from various vendors at a local staging warehouse. The team needed to organize, kit, and distribute specific packaging for each job,
including pictures, couches, beds, dressers, lamps, dining room and kitchen items. In addition, each delivery mandated:

  • Time-specific installation service
  • Real time visibility to warehouse inventory online
  • Assembly services
  • A single invoice per job for delivery, installation, services

Working with CRST on this project was incredibly easy, It was clear from the beginning that they had the right team, facilities, and technology to support our needs seamlessly throughout the project. They delivered!”

A Successful Service Strategy

CRST understands that every customer and every job comes with its own unique set of challenges. That’s why we customize our services to fit the customers’ needs. Thanks to our extensive network and experienced team, we sourced and negotiated pricing with our established network of service providers, managed inventory, and coordinated the deliveries to various facilities. CRST successfully handled the installation to over 300 sites and reduced leakage of product in-field through business process reengineering and web visibility, which ultimately gave the customer increased control and coordination with installation crews. Additionally, the supply chain costs were reduced overall while being damage-free.

“This project was a great fit for CRST Specialized Solutions. With 46 primary warehouse locations in the U.S., we were able to accommodate their needs for staging, labor, install services, and white glove transportation.”

DAVE STEWART, Vice President, Regional Sales
