Beverage Manufacturer Brews Up Impressive Sourcing Improvements with CombineNet

Challenge: One of the world's largest brewing companies relies on a highly complex freight network to ship raw materials, packaging and finished product between suppliers, breweries, warehouses and customers. The complexity of the European network, with 2,500 lanes, led to a "decentralized" sourcing approach, with multiple sourcing events across Europe.

Solution: They turned to CombineNet's advanced e-sourcing technology to consolidate multiple freight sourcing events into a single center-led event, to increase competition among carriers and reduce the burden on internal teams. CombineNet ASAP was chosen for its support of large-scale sourcing events, and capabilities for collecting and analyzing all of the price, non-price, and service information they needed to make the right award decisions.

Results: The team achieved more than 8% savings on road freight while retaining 80% of incumbent carriers, and significantly improved team efficiency by conducting a single consolidated road freight e-sourcing event for the entire European network.
