Whirlpool Corporation Evolution of a supply chain

Abstract

Whirlpool Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of major home appliances, with annual sales over $19 billion, more than 80,000 employees and more than 60 manufacturing and technology research centers globally.

However, since naming Penske its lead logistics supplier, Whirlpool experienced cost savings, increased customer satisfaction and found a partner to help integrate the recent acquisition of Maytag.
