The world's largest skim milk powder company has a supply chain footprint that rivals any Fortune 500 company. Since their products are traded on the commodities market, their supply chain was constantly fluctuating, trying to adapt to market swings. Their customers also have strict delivery requirements that result in fines if they are missed.
With approximately 4,500 TEU’s 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. Read more

Crossing the IT Border
A billion dollar manufacturing company was moving cargo from Mexico to the US for export. However, with the massive scale of approximately 10,000 SKU’s, the company was overspending on operations and losing thousands of dollars in tax savings through NAFTA-enabled programs. It was not feasible for this company to continue to effectively manage the logistics for this lane alone.
Agility developed a distinctive IT solution that utilized this customer's existing cross-border setup to provide the necessary visibility to build a best-in-class operation. The solution was quickly able to identify a consolidation program that maximized the inbound truckloads, cutting the number of third-party distribution centers required to store products in the US.
