The Duty Bound Difference
We understand the tempo of military food logistics, and the criticality of ‘surge’. We know that the consequences of not fulfilling a ‘last-minute requirement’ can be very different than in the commercial food business. Our knowledge of transportation, airlift, and other issues related to shipment into combat zones ensures our customers will meet their fill rates, delivering products on-time and on-target, in both CONUS and OCONUS theaters
We use regional distribution centers to enable container assembly and loading in a ‘fill-up-the-truck’ order-completion mode, keeping costs down and eliminating inbound freight costs to the prime vendor consolidators. We don’t take out cost by cutting quality or product; we do it through consolidated warehousing, knowledge-sharing, tight overhead control, and focused logistics. We’ve innovated a way to bring our expertise together with others, gaining demonstrated efficiencies.
We are acutely sensitive to the demands of long supply chains. We use enhanced palletizing techniques to assure the integrity of our products and shipments. Many features of our packaging and shipping protocols are becoming standard for OCONUS subsistence shipping. We’re in the MPA program of the DLA Catalogue, so our pricing is an open factor.
We’re proud of our record of consistent quality fulfilment on-time, and we’ve never failed an audit. If, as a Duty Bound client you have to undergo an audit, we’ll have a representative right there beside you.
In addition, we fully support our customers' requirements for special labeling, marketing support for industrial shows, and custom packing, anywhere the US military requires subsistence support.
If you’re a vendor, we’re also the lowest-cost solution to your requirement to participate in the Socio-Economic Sector in the Small Business Program. Finally, we can match any current programs you may be participating in, or provide one if necessary.
