Yield Savings and Enhance Control of High-Volume Fulfillment Operations

Challenge: A large automotive manufacturer with a complex matrix of products, carriers and customer preferences often found themselves limited to a single carrier for LTL shipments because they did not have an expedient way to source the most economical carrier, which would also satisfy their customers' specific requirements. The client needed a flexible shipping solution that would accommodate all types of shipments within a single system.

Solution: Descartes delivered a multi-carrier-compliant enterprise logistics software solution that provides efficient planning and execution of shipping and warehouse activities at touch-points in the distribution process. The solution helps support rules-driven automated routing of Truckload (TL), LTL, small package carrier, multi-modal, fleet and messenger services.

Results: The client can now handle all shipping needs, from the very smallest package to the largest full loads and has eliminated the need for manual paper processes which has resulted in major savings and improved efficiencies.

About the Solution Provider: Descartes is the global leader in providing on-demand, software-as-a-service solutions focused on improving the productivity, performance and security of logistics-intensive businesses. Customers use our modular, cloud-based solutions to route, schedule, track and measure delivery resources; plan, and execute shipments; rate, audit and pay transportation invoices; access global trade data; file customs and security documents; and more.
