Logistics Management Solutions (LMS) has implemented its TOTAL Web-enabled transportation management system for Danbury, Conn.-based Honeywell Consumer Products Group, which specializes in motor vehicle parts and accessories.
LMS, St. Louis, says TOTAL was implemented in less than 90 days and is expected to further reduce transportation costs and improve data management and freight visibility for CPG, which was looking for an effective way to manage its over-the-road transportation activities.
"Honeywell found the implementation process to be practically seamless," says Michael T. Lee, logistics specialist for Honeywell CPG. "We immediately realized the benefits of the optimizer, which has dramatically increased the productivity of our transportation planning staff."
The group's transportation personnel, who work at branch locations in Hebron, Ky., and Fernley, Nev., use TOTAL to perform freight optimization, freight rating, load planning, load tendering, tracking and tracing, and data management. Key components include a high-speed optimization engine that evaluates order data to exploit opportunities for freight consolidation, aggregation, pooling and cross-docking, as well as other cost-cutting strategies.
Honeywell CPG's leading automotive care and braking products include FRAM filters, Autolite spark plugs, Prestone antifreeze, Holts car care, and Bendix and Jurid brakes.
