Leading Chemical Manufacturer Finds Good Chemistry with Transportation Partners

Challenge: A leading chemical manufacturer uses the Elemica Logistics Sourcing services with Transportation Bid Optimization to help them prepare for predicted capacity constraints and to streamline, automate and run dynamic sourcing events for logistics transportation. The rapidly changing transportation services market requires companies to run more frequent transportation bidding events that encompass all transportation modes.

Solution: Elemica's Logistics Sourcing allows the company to solicit and contract rates, capacity, and lanes for regional or global transportation partners.

It analyzes multiple transportation strategies with alternatives for mode, equipment size, transit time, and volume committed to single or multiple carriers. Event and bid history is tracked and stored to meet auditing and compliance requirements.

Results: The solution has cut the sourcing event time by 50-70%, while aggregating and standardizing logistic routing guides and the carrier base.
