Challenge: MD Logistics existing legacy Transportation Management System was used to manually optimize freight solutions for customers that elected for the value-added service. However, it lacked full integration to the Warehouse Management System and the ability to rate shop and optimize freight spend and routing automatically.
Solution: To better serve customers, MD Logistics implemented the Agile TMS and integrated it into its current Red Prairie WMS. This integration allows MD Logistics to find customers the most strategic carrier based on a variety of factors, including price, transit times and retail compliance. Agile TMS works with the WMS to automatically price shipments simultaneously amongst carriers that meet a customer's specific delivery needs.
Results: MD Logistics can efficiently and cost-effectively handle freight selection and important tasks such as filing claim paperwork, auditing invoices and managing non-deliverables for customers that opt for the value-added service.
