Since 2020, a private label contract manufacturer (or “the Company”) has leveraged RJW Logistics Group as its full-service retail logistics provider for end-to-end supply chain support. This includes leveraging RJW’s Centralized Warehousing Strategy and Retail Consolidation Program to drive improved scorecard performance and increased sales at retail.
In an effort to gain transparency throughout its operations and gain access to valuable retail logistics data, the Company expanded its partnership by integrating RJW’s new advanced supply chain analytics technology, RJW Edge. Delivering real-time visibility and access to critical insights, RJW Edge empowers suppliers to make the best decisions that maximize efficiency, accelerate transparency and drive CPG growth.
As the company’s Senior Account Manager said, “There was no hesitation with signing up for RJW Edge. We’ve had a tremendous relationship with RJW to date and we were immediately excited about utilizing this technology to position us for continued success. This platform is really an added benefit to our partnership.”
The dedicated RJW Account Management team made the integration of RJW Edge a seamless process. Working step-by-step with an Account Manager, the Company personalized its Edge platform dashboards – Flash, Insights and Guru – to align with its business needs. From streamlining Billing, Inventory and Order processes to measuring OTIF performance to viewing Ship Load Reports, the advanced technology delivered real-time data via easy-to-understand visuals to drive supply chain optimization.
“The inventory management platforms within RJW Edge are extremely helpful for our Sourcing team to see order patterns in real-time, so we can allocate inventory accurately and in a timely manner.”

While the company has found value in every platform within RJW Edge, when it comes to Edge Guru – a platform that enables automation of Walmart claims and disputes to minimize fines – the platform has vastly exceeded expectations.
In less than a year, RJW Edge Guru has saved the company more than $125,000 in Walmart short pays and receiving variances.
With this platform, suppliers maintain a real-time pulse with the ability to track and monitor claims, while gaining insight into which items and Walmart Distribution Centers are most frequently receiving claims. This data is increasingly critical as the Company recently acquired a new production facility to meet demand for an expanding product line within Walmart.
With three years of logistics partnership behind them, the Company has increased sales, expanded its business within the nation’s largest retailer and maximized its return on its retail logistics investment.
