MADISON, WI (April 26, 2019) – Pentair PLC has adopted RateLinx’s ecosystem for global transportation management, track and trace, and freight audit and payment. The company began the journey searching for a new TMS solution, but determined they needed a complete data solution to integrate and automate logistics, finance, and supply chain.

The new system will automate processes, streamline supply chain operations, and consolidate data sources and systems. Using RateLinx’s “Logistics in 3D℠” collaborative process, the company discovered an opportunity for significant cost reductions through efficiencies gained with accurate and complete data.

“I am excited about our future with RateLinx,” says Sam Perkins, Director of Global Logistics and Materials. “RateLinx delivers technology that will help Pentair with our number one priority: providing our customers with industry-leading, competitive, and technologically advanced water solutions. It is the tool that gives us access to extremely accurate supply chain visibility, including both spend management and shipment-in-transit detail.”

The Shiplinx Transportation Management System provides Pentair with a uniform execution and analytical tool used by each Pentair location, enabling the company to see the supply chain in real-time, make adjustments, and quickly solve problems – across all modes of transportation. The company also plans to deploy RateLinx’s Marketplace to help control freight costs.

“The RateLinx ecosystem allows us to deliver globally on our commitment to our customers and provide our customers high performing Pentair products,” Perkins said.

“We are proud to support Pentair’s global supply chain strategies and initiatives,” says Shannon Vaillancourt, RateLinx’s President and Founder. “We are excited to help Pentair deliver sustainable water solutions to customers worldwide.”
