IntelliTrans, a leader in global multimodal solutions for optimizing supply chain operations for bulk & break-bulk industries, announces being named a winner of a 2023 Top Supply Chain Projects Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain. These awards profile innovative case study-type projects designed to automate, optimize, streamline, and improve the supply chain. IntelliTrans was chosen for its supply chain project with a global manufacturer of paper & forest products. With IntelliTrans’ supply chain execution and visibility platform in place, this large lumber producer can focus on the strategic side of its business and let the technology handle its day-to-day freight management.
“From demand planning and forecasting to implementing the ultimate in warehouse automation, the past 12 months have seen companies within the supply chain and logistics space upgrade, enhance, adopt, and adapt in order to achieve greater efficiency along the chain,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “That’s why it’s important today’s supply chains run on collaboration. Companies partnered to implement each other’s software and technology and work smarter together. And, it’s these partnerships that have enabled many supply chain organizations to better manage inventory, reduce costs, retain employees, track data and analytics, and build resilience for whatever disruptions may lie ahead.”
“IntelliTrans is pleased to receive the 2023 Top Supply Chain Project award for its work with a global manufacturer, which gained efficiencies that allowed the company’s logistics team members more time back in their busy day,” says Ken Sherman, President of IntelliTrans. “Using the IntelliTrans TMS at the manufacturer to automate processes has resulted in $3.65M savings while the IntelliTrans Global Visibility Platform delivers $5M in savings.”
IntelliTrans automates transportation processes at the paper & forest products manufacturer. It helps the manufacturer readily identify and leverage viable freight opportunities—something it wasn’t managing efficiently with its manual systems. IntelliTrans also provides sensors inside of silos to provide visibility on when replenishment is needed. By having IntelliTrans audit and pay freight bills, this manufacturer has saved over $4.8M dollars.
