Wine Distributor Achieves High Spirits with Amber Road

Challenge: One of the largest distributors of wine and spirits in the USoperates in a tightly regulated industry with outdated business processes and systems, and was challenged by a lack of visibility to inbound orders from its global vendors and suppliers. In addition, the company's manual order and shipment tracking processes frequently led to significant delays and difficulty in determining accurate inventory levels and expected arrival dates, leading to reactive expediting and additional intra-company transportation moves.

Results: Improved visibility of inbound inventory; Better understanding of supply variability; Enhanced communication and collaboration with global vendors and suppliers; Comprehensive analysis and measurement of vendor and carrier performance.
