As manufacturing expanded and the SKU count increased, available warehouse space was reduced, and product weight variability increased. This, combined with outstanding demand for “Ready-to-Serve” items that cube out trailers, proved their previous load building tool was inadequate, and the fill rate suffered.
Integrated with the supply-planning system, AutoO₂ builds payload-maximizing shipments from available inventory. And it does it quickly.
“The folks from AutoO₂ analyzed our data and told us our savings. We saw savings right out of the gate,” said Zach Dale. “Additionally, the load diagrams that AutoO₂ produces speed shipping and ensures trucks don’t come back from the scale overweight.”

Enhance loader efficiency (new loaders are as effective as experienced staff)
Decrease carbon footprint
Cut truck axle-weight issues and eliminate damage
AutoO₂ ROI is weeks
