Dynamic order management

Consumer-product companies have traditionally performed network planning every year or so.  But their monolithic order systems are seldom tuned to allow such things across the network as daily:
  • Work-load balancing
  • Space management
  • Least cost sourcing.  As an example, a customer located between 2 DC’s (“A” & “B”) might order the preponderance of product that is made close to DC “A” – but be shipped from DC “B”. Our analysis shows this to cost 2-4% of supply chain costs
We are solutioning this problem.  Who is interested in working with us?

    • Exporters worry that customs infrastructure is untested and will fail Jan 1 when it appears to be needed in a “hard exit"
