Summary :

YAMATO helps one of the world’s largest snack companies by forming a dedicated team tasked to handle a quota commodity.

Backstory :

Calbee Inc is a major Japanese snack food maker. It was founded on April 30, 1949. It launched operations at a new plant in the U.S. for making its mainstay products "Kappa Ebisen" shrimp chips and "Saya-endo" snow pea crisps on 2007. Its snacks are hugely popular in Asia, and are well known in the U.S. The company was looking for a shipping service that could help them secure potatoes for another line of popular snack foods.

Because of logistics and quota on potatoes exported to Japan, YAMATO put together a team dedicated to keeping Calbee supplied with potatoes when the domestic crop in Japan becomes limited. The YAMATO team provided management for proper routing, lead time and handling in Japan. A “single window” was set up for solving any problems or issues.

Results :
