Client Profile

Comcast Cable is one of the United States' largest video, high-speed Internet, and phone providers to residential customers under the XFINITY brand, and also provides these services to businesses. It provides security and automation services to residential customers. Comcast also offers a wireless cell phone service under the brand Xfinity Mobile. The company has 29 million customer relationships in the United States (39 states and Washington, D.C.)

Project Description

Comcast purchases settop boxes and routers from OEMs who manufacture in Asia and traditionally have packaged the units in bulk pallets and shipped to West Coast locations. Comcast's operations occur across the county and is growing fulfillment through the retail channel. As the business is shifting, we are looking for a proposal to best optimize shipping lanes to the US and determine the most cost effective packaging configuration: * Bulk product with power supply included * Bulk product without power supply * Product fully kitted in retail packaging
