Challenge: A major CPG brand needed to consolidate their supply chain to reduce redundancies, such as an overlapping network and shared demand to decrease overall costs, while still delivering products to customers in a timely manner.
Solution: The customer utilized LLamasoft Transportation Guru to analyze their current transportation routes and other data such as historical rates, business hours and dwell times, hours of service and more. With this analysis they were able to isolate the need to separate customer outbound volume and move volume to a one-point-ship plan.
Results: This analysis and subsequent implementation of new practices resulted in a 10 percent reduction in shipment costs and an 11 percent reduction in overall costs.
