Special Project Highlights

 

Monsanto – Plot Seed

Service description: Monsanto would ship in between 150,000-200,000 bags of plot seed (20k bags).  The seed would be received into the warehouses and managed through the Monsanto SAP system (the identical process that would happen at a Monsanto plant).  Monsanto was given a direct DSL line and had 24/7 access to the network and printers at the warehouse facility.  Orders would then be generated and Blomgren Seed Warehouses would pick the orders, package, label, and send the orders via shipping services (Fed-Ex, UPS, Conway, Etc.).

 

Key Highlights:

-Large quantity of seed handled by Blomgren Seed Warehouses

-Limited turn around time (most seed was received in January and shipped back out by March)

-Technical set-up (separate DSL line for security, seed was picked on handhelds and run through Monsanto SAP which demonstrates a high level of trust from Monsanto)

- Seed was shipped across the Midwestern and Southern Corn Belt. Monsanto relied heavily on Blomgren Seed Warehouses for no mistakes which is critical when time doesn’t allow for seed to be re-shipped)

- Blomgren Seed Warehouses developed the standard operating procedures to ensure that mistakes were not made

-High quality relationships with shippers.  During the busy period of the project Blomgren Seed Warehouses would ship 2-3 semis per day

Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC.  – Avicta Complete Beans trial study

Service description: Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC used Blomgren Seed Warehouses for their Avicta Complete Beans trial study.  Blomgren Seed Warehouses lined up receiving and storing 6340 units of Soybeans.  Approximately half the seed was delivered with the remaining half organized by Blomgren Seed Warehouses.  Seed pick up and redelivery was arranged by the Blomgren Seed Warehouse Staff and was performed with Blomgren Seed Warehouse semi.  Seed was stored on-site and treated in a heated warehouse.  Blomgren Seed Warehouses made it possible for Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc.  to bring in a “for-hire” seed treater and use a central location for the project.  This allowed the project to be completed in minimal time with financial savings.

-       Large quantity of seed handled by Blomgren Seed Warehouses
