When Dry Storage Corporation first opened its doors in 1960, how did we help customers? We provided space to store their products and a promise to handle their products as if they were our own. Through the years, we added customers, locations, capabilities, knowledge, and experience – until today, we are so much more than space. So much more than transportation…and value-added services…and process management…and start-up expertise…and network analysis and design…or any of the single elements involved in a successful supply chain.

At DSC, we believe it's the combination of strategic knowledge and operations excellence that makes us a different kind of supply chain partner. It's the ability to collaborate with our customers on supply chain strategies, systems and solutions that specifically address their needs. And the ability to re-think, re-design, and adapt those strategies, systems, and solutions when needs and conditions change.

When we welcomed the new millennium in 2000, we promised that DSC would be "ready-for-anything!" Little did we know the dramatic events and circumstances that would rock the world and the business environment. But what we've discovered is that strong partnerships are the key to survival and success through both good times and bad. At DSC, we're proud of our 50 years in the business, but we're focused on the future. We will keep expanding and improving our partnerships. We will continue to apply Our Strengths – leadership, collaboration, information, execution, flexibility, and integrity – for the benefit of our customer partners. And we will continue to be "ready for anything!"
