Specialized truck manufacturer optimizes cross-border supply chain and bilingual visibility

Challenge: The strategy for a leading manufacturer of diesel and specialized trucks was to grow truck assembly operations in Mexico. To do so, it needed to integrate an already existing U.S. cross-dock network with cross-border activities and optimize shipments between the countries, while ensuring reliability and visibility throughout the supply chain.

Solution: DHL provided an end-to-end solution for an instant, seamless cross-border infrastructure. It offered a common bilingual IT platform with enhanced reporting capabilities across transportation, cross-docking and customs clearance; thereby allowing more visibility to manage the business.

Results: The solution realized significant cost saving efficiencies through improved reliability and shipment visibility. In addition, it produced lower transportation costs, shorter border crossing times, a decreased number of supply chain partners, and a lower overall solution cost.
