Scaling For 10x Growth and the Complexities of Multimodal Logistics

Challenge: Handling multimodal logistics over a period of rapid growth with spreadsheets and whiteboards. That was the challenge that faced an American crude oil logistics company in 2012, when it grew 10-fold in just six months. It needed a planning solution that could handle the complexities of multimodal logistics, and fast.

Solution: The company selected the Quintiq single-platform solution to plan and optimize its barge and rail operations. Quintiq migrated the company to the new platform in two weeks, and in just a few months achieved full operational capacity.

Results: With Quintiq, the company was able to cut costs by optimizing turn times and tank levels for its existing assets. Planners had full visibility of assets, and were able to reduce demurrage fees for idle vessels. Sales increased because planners can determine if a contract can be fulfilled in seconds, not hours.

About the Solution Provider: Every business has its supply chain planning puzzles. Since 1997, Quintiq has been solving each of those puzzles using a single-platform supply chain planning and optimization software. Today, tens of thousands of users in over 80 countries rely on Quintiq software to plan and optimize employees, logistics and production.
