In anticipation of Amazon Prime Day, a rising mocktail company needed a swift strategy to boost production and satisfy increased demand, while keeping their operations team stress-free.
Temporary Logistics Ramp-Up
Recess is a company that offers lightly sparkling water beverages and powders made with real ingredients and adaptogens to help you feel calm, cool and collected. As they were participating in Prime Day, Recess was forecasting a sizable, yet temporary, spike in demand. They needed a short-term solution that would scale to meet the demand without adding pressure on their Operations team.
Acción offered a temporary logistics ramp-up that would allow Recess to have their variety packs packed and prepared in a short turnaround time. The average demand prior to this was between 10,000 – 15,000 trays a month, but they needed the option to scale up logistics without incurring overtime costs.
Acción Performance customized a short-term solution to scale up production volume to meet demand, in a quick turnaround window, all while avoiding overtime charges.
