About the client
123 Sourcing is a fourth-party logistics company that offers operational logistics services including transportation, consolidation center storage, picking and packing, inventory forecasting, order fulfillment, and freight forwarding.
123 Sourcing supplies manufacturing plants with raw materials and components from multiple suppliers to ensure uninterrupted production. However, this process was cumbersome due to urgent changes that could occur on the part of both manufacturers and suppliers.
To reduce lead time and avoid errors, our client decided to automate their delivery management with a load planning system allowing for:
- calculating availability of materials/components
- comparing calculations based on changing parameters
- planning the number of containers needed to fulfill a shipment
- updating production plans based on updates to delivery plans
The load planning system optimized the client’s operational processes and achieved the following results:
Compulsory recalculations now take seconds instead of hours
No need to manually calculate production plan feasibility
No more overstocking, resulting in reduced storage costs and better customer loyalty
Minimized human errors like improper delivery planning, unoptimized container filling, and forgetting to make critical phone calls
Optimized shipping costs due to proper planning of the number of containers needed to fulfill a delivery
