Business Drivers / Challenges

  • CF were suffering from poor visibility into their supply chain. With predominately manual transport planning and paper-orientated processes they lacked the control to drive improvements and savings 
  • Known high error rate in vital areas
  • Service levels were unknown leading to poor performance / customer service

Solutions

  • Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) deployed as standard with no customisation
  • Implemented to manage clients’ end-to-end, order-to-cash process
  • Standardised models to expedite on-boarding LSPs
  • ERP and carrier connectivity enabled with Oracle Fusion
  • Oracle FTI implemented for KPI dashboards & drill-down into transactional level analytics

Results

  • Heightened control across the supply chain. Simplified complex planning optimisation involving pool distribution, dedicated fleet, as well as load consolidation across facilities and modes. Recording of events at key points providing visibility
  • Planning automated allowing staff time to be reallocated to value-adding activities
  • Greater understanding of costs, leading to effective strategy for on-going cost reductions. New understanding of customer service levels leading to improvements in driving customer-led initiatives
