BENEFITS FOR YOUR COMPANY
Overall cost savings
Efficient inbound flow is paramount for wholesalers, preventing stock shortages and ensuring customer satisfaction. While most TMS systems capably manage the transport process, they fall short in overseeing the span between shipment, order, and goods receipt at the warehouse. This lapse results in concealed costs for wholesalers. Trucks tend to arrive in peaks and troughs, leading to yard congestions, shortages in docks, and an unbalance in warehouse resource needs. Requesting information or handling claims is mainly done manually.
Finally, supplier and carrier performance evaluations are in a lot of cases based on emotions and not on data.
Experience indicates an average expense of approximately 33€ per occurrence, attributable to administrative overheads and suboptimal warehousing practices.
Streamliner offers an easy-to-implement solution to this problem and can reduce this cost price up to 8€ per order.
