How Major Engines/Machinery Manufacturer Used Visibility to Reduce In-Transit Inventory By 15%

Challenge: Previously our client, one of the world's largest engines and machinery manufacturers, spent years trying to build systems and get more information from its service providers, before moving to the cloud with a pay as you go service - lower risk approach with better results.

Solution: Our client utilizes the GT Nexus cloud based visibility platform to drive agility into its supply chain. It has visibility to all international and domestic shipments, all modes, from end to end. The client reduced inventory, variability, and transportation spend while improving velocity and customer service.  It also launched a supply chain control tower on GT Nexus. The client monitors the flow of products and shipments across three major supply chains: inbound material and components into plants, outbound finished product to dealers, and service logistics for replacement parts.

Results: Because of better visibility and tighter control, our client cut three days of inventory in the first six months and improved customer service.

About the Solution Provider: GT Nexus provides the cloud-based collaboration platform that leaders in nearly every sector rely on to automate hundreds of supply chain processes on a global scale, across entire trade communities. Customers include Xerox, Williams-Sonoma, Nestlé, DHL, Sears, Caterpillar, Kraft Foods and The Home Depot.
