Blount International Gets Control of Its Logistics Spend

You can't optimize your logistics network if you don't know how much you're spending on it.

Blount International Gets Control of Its Logistics Spend

That was the challenge confronting Blount International, Inc., a global maker and marketer of equipment and replacement parts for the forestry, lawn and garden, farm, ranch and concrete-cutting industries. On this episode, we speak with Alfredo Camacho, Blount's director of global logistics. He explains how the company tackled the problem of inadequate visibility of its army of logistics providers. What began as an effort to better manage freight payment and auditing became an initiative that allowed Blount to restructure its carrier base, achieve greater visibility of spend, negotiate better contracts with logistics partners, and streamline the entire settlement process. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.

This episode is sponsored by Trax Technologies.
