Manufacturer Automates Logistics Operations to Find 20% Freight Savings

Challenge: This client, a premier manufacturer of nutritional supplements for athletes and active-lifestyle individuals, experienced rapid growth that necessitated an automated logistical operation. Manually managing an entire supply chain operation led to numerous inefficiencies and unnecessary costs.
