As a global leader in dry bulk and liquid storage systems with customers on six continents, this Shipwell user serves an extensive network of high profile projects worldwide. As such, delivering the best possible shipping experience has always been a high priority, but with a two man team for managing all outbound shipments, their manual processes needed an upgrade in order to streamline operations.
Getting back more time in the day to focus on customers and new opportunities
Addressing inefficiency in workflows
With a bidding system based on emails and spreadsheets, existing manual processes would take them two days to complete. They were looking for a TMS that would give them more time to focus on other important tasks.
Increasing visibility into shipment status
With little insight into the status of their on-time-delivery (OTD) and on-time-pickup (OTP) status and a reactive approach to exception management, addressing issues before they develop into costly disruptions was problematic.
Identifying new opportunities
Manual processes and a lack of reliable information was creating friction for other departments, making change difficult. Uncovering cross-department opportunities for improvement was
a top priority.
