Challenge: A global third-party logistics provider (3PL) was looking for distance calculations between fixed locations to be used for cost analysis, bid response and rate quoting. The company also wanted predictive calculation capabilities for shipment delivery delays based on real-time traffic incident data.
Challenge: A European leader in freight exchange solutions wanted to further enhance its successful planning and calculation program for transport companies by providing near real-time truck location information to telematics and logistics managers.
Challenge: A U.S. furniture importer with over 100 shipments per month from China experienced costly demurrage and delays due to untimely entry filings. Lengthy and complex invoices made it difficult to determine whether the goods — which included bed parts and other furniture components — should be classified as individual parts, complete beds or other complete furniture items. These time-consuming entries resulted in late filings, and the delays put the company at risk for chargebacks from big-box retailers.
