Solving supply chain shortages and mastering forecasting with inventory management system
Agility provided an international freight management solution to a North American transit manufacturer experiencing ongoing supply chain shortages at its seven parts distribution locations. We created a transit time and service schedule from international vendors for all their distribution centers; the schedule allowed the client to plan ahead with full knowledge of logistics service offerings, transit time and cost. Not only could the client cut inventory-carrying costs, maintain vehicle down-time service and stay within forecasted costs, but also its logistics, purchasing and warehousing personnel also got visibility into what was coming to distribution locations through customized tracking reports generated by the Agility Connects tracking portal. This solution enabled the customer to better handle transportation spend forecasting.
