Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) April 25th, 2016
Single serve coffee maker / promotional products manufacturing startup of award-winning 100% Kona coffee pods Pooki’s Mahi announced today it awarded its entire global transportation business to FedEx.
Most of Pooki’s Mahi’s shipments are between suppliers, manufactures and eventually resellers. Pooki’s Mahi’s RFI (Request For Information) and RFP (Request For Proposal) are very lengthy and geared to quickly eliminate vendors and suppliers who are not a cultural fit. Pooki’s Mahi took over four years to finish a very lengthy RFP confirm the partner of choice to handle transportation. Several criteria were used. The list of 50+ transportation and fulfillments firms was quickly short listed to five firms. All but one firm failed to meet Pooki’s Mahi’s cultural fit criteria.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Key Criteria – Transportation:
“We are clear on the opportunity and target market share, our product roadmap and what makes Pooki’s Mahi different from our competitors. At the core Pooki’s Mahi is a high tech company with a very efficient supply chain ecosystem that delivers a low-tech product in an industry that is primed for disruption. Consistent execution trumps theories of gaining market share. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers and brand advocates expect high quality Hawaiian 100% Kona coffee pods single serve cups delivered within five days with zero cost shipping,” says Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller.
Les explains, “Pooki’s Mahi’s standard shipping time is equivalent to two to three business days. It takes up to two business days to fulfill etail orders and up to three business days for pallet size orders. The transportation partner selected has consistently delivered or beat one to three business days. For example, a customer placing an order on PookisMahi.com on Monday will receive their order no later than Friday. Some of our repeat customers would receive orders the next day. In comparison it takes up to seven business days for standard delivery to receive an order. It costs an average $30.00 if a customer wanted to receive the order in two business days.”
The lead transportation partner will eliminate un-necessary chargebacks at the resellers by delivering consistently.
The Silicon Valley executive continues, “I took my NPI (New Product Introduction), PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) and operations excellence expertise from high tech and implemented and taught Pooki’s Mahi’s partners how to be more (operationally) efficient and use technology to go faster. We ideate and innovate with our product partners, suppliers by using key customer insights to drive decisions. Our NPI expertise from the high tech industry influences new product launches as well as End-Of-Life of existing ones. Pooki’s Mahi’s supply chain ecosystem is built on having industry leading partners who are subject matter experts, deliver consistently and prioritizes solving our challenges. The multiple awards won to date validate our business model and strategy.”
Pooki’s Mahi’s exceptional market success resulted from a well-orchestrated NPI and Go-To-Market Launch strategy. It generates competitive advantages and long-term value.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO, Leslie O. Magsalay-Zeller started her career in high technology corporations. Les has successfully led multiple products and business launches for Fortune 500 companies and played key roles in exiting startups. Her expertise in New Product Introductions, a framework for consistently introducing products to market using a Product Life Cycle Management process are key to Pooki’s Mahi’s rise to success. This is evident in Pooki’s Mahi’s key wins.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Key 2016 Supply Chain Wins to date:
Pooki’s Mahi is built on three core expertise: New Product Introductions (NPI), Operations Excellence (OpEx), and Product Life Cycle Management (PLM). The 2015 key wins would not be possible with significant investments in technology and supply chain ecosystem. Pooki’s Mahi Go-To-Market strategies support the core principles.
