Supply Chain Visibility Case Studies

Findchips Pro Enterprise Decreased Product Delays by 48 Percent

Challenge: A company's engineering and sourcing departments were siloed and lacking access to historical information and accurate market data (pricing, availability and risk). The engineering department partially designs based on performance, but the bills of materials (BOMs) sent to the sourcing department were not procurable. The company needed access to the right data to increase contract negotiating power and reduce product launch risks due to inventory and manufacturing issues.[more]

Food Manufacturer Cuts Freight Spend by 10 Percent Using Kuebix TMS

Challenge: A large food manufacturer was using an arduous manual process to manage its freight.

Online Drop-Ship Retailer Grows Business by Improving Supplier Relationships

Challenge: An online, drop-ship retailer was having a hard time managing supplier order fulfillment as ordering volumes increased.

How Supply Chain Visibility Can Yield Results

Challenge: A company looked to identify major cost components associated with a supplier's product pricing. Partnering with its integrated supply chain solutions provider on visibility initiatives, the company collaborated with the supplier and determined that products were shipping from forward storage warehouse locations. The company had no visibility to these underlying logistics costs nor were the warehouse locations optimal for its network. Items were also produced in multiple locations with many inter-plant transfers occurring in the supplier’s network.[more]

Equipment Provider Keeps Processes on Pace With Accelerating Growth

Challenge: As a quickly growing business, one of the world's largest infrastructure and irrigation equipment providers realized its existing approach to managing freight invoices wasn't keeping up.

Driving Process Efficiency & Transparency by Automating Quality Management

Challenge: A global solution provider for the glass container industry with production locations in Sweden, United States, China and Malaysia wanted to continually drive customer satisfaction and maintain a competitive advantage through established quality initiatives throughout the supply chain.
