A manufacturing and distribution organization achieves big cost‑savings and quick ROI while re‑engineering its logistics operation through optimization and automation.
During a period of sagging market conditions, a Fortune 500 manufacturing and distribution company set out to find a transportation management system to bring visibility and real-time insights into two dozen subsidiary companies and their systems. The company’s large scale, variety of products, and global reach make it an industry powerhouse.
Despite using innovative technology and design in its products, the company’s transportation management approach was antiquated—a mix of outdated, manual, stand-alone systems, and tracking methods inherited from the subsidiaries in its portfolio. The organization was surrounded by data, but lacked the tools to bring it all together and create the insights needed to optimize its shipping.
The company would continue to make less-than-optimal decisions based on misleading, delayed, inaccurate, or incomplete information.
“It was difficult for me to design and deploy a global logistics strategy when I didn’t have any data. We were relying on opinion rather than data or fact.”
Data quality reduces manual work and empowers process automation to drive shipment optimization, quick cost-savings and ROI .
