Challenge: A large food manufacturer was using an arduous manual process to manage its freight. The company knew something had to change to eliminate extensive paper chasing, faxing, repetitive work and wasted time. But with the high volume of inbound and outbound freight to manage, a time-consuming implementation of a TMS wasn't feasible.
Solution: Kuebix fulfilled the company’s “must-haves” and more — improving visibility, providing actionable reports and automating key functions of the transportation process. For example, the TMS handles all shipment scheduling, dock scheduling, invoicing and rate tendering. Other selling points included Kuebix’s route optimization capabilities and facilitation of better carrier collaboration.
Results: Since implementing the Kuebix TMS, manual processing of information has been virtually eliminated, and customer service has drastically improved. Within the first nine months, the manufacturer was able to reduce its freight spend by about 10 percent for a total of $1m in savings.
About the Solution Provider: Kuebix offers a transportation management system that enables companies to capitalize on supply chain opportunities through visibility, control and analytics. Kuebix is democratizing the rating, booking and tracking of freight with its free TMS, Kuebix Shipper, while shippers seeking premium features can upgrade to Kuebix Business Pro or Kuebix Enterprise.
