The world's largest skim milk powder company has a massive supply chain. Since its products are traded on the commodities market, the supply chain was constantly fluctuating to adapt to market swings.

With approximately 4,500 TEUs annually, an unstructured supply chain costs thousands more in spot rates and requires a scramble to find vessels with space. An enterprise dynamic supply chain solution that complemented this customer's business would be required to facilitate daily operations as well as quickly scale up. Agility worked with our core ocean carriers to build a rate structure to limit the impact of the changes in the commodity market, saving the customer thousands and ensuring space on premium carriers. Agility was also able to build custom visibility tools accessible by the customer’s respective customers, ensuring no delivery penalties were incurred.
