Global Exporter Gains Supply Chain Success Via Improved Communication & Visibility

Challenge: A large U.S.-based manufacturer exports thousands of shipments each year around the globe. Practicing lean supply chain management, the company often manufactures products as orders are received. To meet its customers' needs, on-time deliveries are critical. The exporter's ocean transportation group strives to continuously improve on-time deliveries, communication about changes to cargo delivery dates, and fulfillment of service contract commitments.

Solution: Working with its ocean carriers and 3PLs, the exporter relies on CargoSmart's performance management solutions to increase transparency and control over its transportation management processes. Before implementing CargoSmart's solutions, challenges included blind spots at transshipment ports, lack of visibility by port and carrier of confirmed loaded containers, and difficulty tracking booking allocation fulfillment.

Results: After implementing CargoSmart's business intelligence reports, the global transportation team gained greater control over its export management process and insight about its vendors' performance to continuously improve service levels and overall supply chain performance.

About the Solution Provider: CargoSmart Limited is a software-as-a-service global shipping and logistics solutions provider, with advanced visibility and performance management, that enables shippers, consignees, logistics service providers, NVOCCs, and ocean carriers to lower transportation management costs, streamline operations, and reduce the risk of late shipments.
