Fixed Cost-Per-Unit (CPU) Model Saves Time + Money


A Louisville-based 3PL company found their large-scaled holiday project behind on production due to turnover and labor inconsistencies and needed a partner who offered flexible support with production, labor, and leadership to oversee the project.

The Challenge

HJI, A Louisville-based 3PL company, annually manages a large-scaled holiday project for their partner. Due to turnover and inconsistencies with labor, production goals were slipping and forcing their Leadership team to work on the production floor daily to meet goals.

When they approached Acción Performance, they were looking for flexibility in support, consistency in labor, and additional leadership capacity to optimize.

The Solution

By providing a custom cost-per-unit model, we were able to lock in a fixed rate for our client. This allowed pricing to stay the same even as production ramps-up. We eliminated staffing stressors by suppling an experienced workforce onsite at their facility to manage the workload. Our leadership oversees all training and adheres production to company standards, eliminating turnover with low productivity.
