Transfreight - Case Study Spotlight

POD reporting increases efficiency at major manufacturer

Challenge
A major manufacturer was faced with the challenge of maintaining control and visibility of inventory on their docks and in the yard, because they relied heavily on manual receiving processes and yard audits. In a JIT environment, this information couldn’t be compiled / analyzed quickly enough to be useful, nor could much of it be considered accurate given the manually intensive process. Something needed to be done quickly to ensure control of the entire production system, so the customer approached Transfreight.
