Plaskolite, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic sheets, was expanding their operations and scaling their business quickly. The company needed a third-party logistics provider (3PL) that could provide innovative solutions to optimize their transportation network and deliver visibility, technology, and cost savings.
By conducting a supply chain network analysis with ODW Logistics, Plaskolite was able to identify gaps in their current transportation strategy. This set a baseline and allowed for alternative freight solutions that would improve shipping efficiencies. To further build efficiencies, EDI integration allowed for seamless shipping optimization that streamlined order entry, improved production and shipping visibility, and combined smaller loads into cost-saving full-truckload shipments.
The results of this strategic logistics partnership were impressive. In the first year, Plaskolite’s transportation costs were reduced by $2M, ODW Logistics scaled to meet the company’s growth without service disruptions, and labor savings helped to control costs.
