CUSTOMER RESULTS

Our experience spans industries and continents. We know and understand what makes supply chains faster, stronger, and more efficient, and actively share thought leadership and best practices globally. Customers work with us to reduce their transportation costs, streamline their processes, increase central freight visibility, and obtain metrics to keep a strategic focus on their business.

Manufacturing

Manufacturers must keep pace with consumer demands for product development and innovation. They also face increasing regulation and compliance requirements. One global manufacturer grew rapidly through acquisition, and needed to consolidate its network and maximize the value of their logistics talent. They implemented Navisphere®, TMC’s cloud based technology, and added our logistics talent onsite. As a result, the company gained centralized visibility over their decentralized network. They also significantly improved cost savings, benchmarked their transportation rates, and freed up internal resources to focus on long-term strategies and objectives.

Automotive

The automotive industry is seeing global growth, but faces challenges created by rapidly changing consumer expectations, expansion in emerging markets, and new technologies. Shorter technology cycle times, more product options, and increased demand for innovation add even more complexity. Automotive shippers and their suppliers can stay competitive and balance downward cost pressures by improving visibility to products in transit, driving compliance to procurement plans, optimizing network design and support execution related to Plan for Every Part (PFEP).

Food and Beverage

Growing consumer demand for new beverage offerings, flavors, packaging formats, and sizes is changing the competitive picture for beverage supply chains. SKU proliferation, ever-increasing fulfillment requirements, growing shipping volumes, and varying level of product demands required a large beverage company to reevaluate their logistics strategy. We worked with them to implement Navisphere technology, automate processes, and implement changes based on network and mode optimization scenarios. The company increased the visibility of their supply chain and significantly improved cycle times, on time delivery, and overall customer service levels.

Produce

For products with an extremely short shelf life and freshness sensitivity, food safety, spoilage, and dated product are prime concerns. Fresh produce supply chains face these challenges at every stage, from the field and packinghouse to processing, distribution, and retail. The difference between success and significant revenue loss can be mitigated by real time visibility and proactive issue resolution across the supply chain. Our team implemented Navisphere®, our global TMS technology, to provide a leading fresh produce company the visibility, supply chain control, increased efficiency, and cost savings they had been looking for.

Paper/Packaging

The packaging industry is under pressure, thanks to consumer spending, exposure to fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies, and increased demand in emerging markets. At the same time, the digital revolution is leading more paper companies to diversify their product portfolio. Organizations in the paper industry must also reduce prices and improve service, in spite of increases in raw materials prices. Paper and packaging shippers need global visibility to understand cost drivers and service impacts, as well as consistent global processes and metrics to optimize their supply chains and lower costs.

Consumer Packaged Goods

Success in this industry demands more than understanding consumer preferences, increasing reach, and driving new product innovation. It also requires collaboration to achieve on time delivery, avoid out of stocks, and ensure a product is there when the consumer arrives to purchase it. A large consumer packaged goods company collaborated with TMC to transform their transportation management strategy, implement Navisphere technology, and integrate process improvements and industry best practices. By doing so, they improved customer service, gained visibility into cost drivers, and increased their sales while scaling their business through acquisitions.
