A whole team dedicated to processing backlogs and daily re-planning is now assigned to more productive tasks!

A leading OEM manufactures and ships processed steel to various domestic & international customers. These shipments are done through road, rail, and domestic & international sea shipments. Various customers place their order requirements ahead of time. Since the cost of dispatches is quite significant, it is imperative that the OEM defines the most efficient plan for these dispatches to optimize shipping costs.

Challenge

Shipment planning needs to address many parameters:

  • Customers have different preferences in acceptable shipping modes.
  • Some materials can only be shipped through certain modes.
  • The shipment plan has to be dynamically adjusted based on actual dispatches and resource availability.
  • Daily Dynamic replanning to accommodate new orders and backlogs.
  • Meet contractual requirements of LSP’s commitments.
  • Keep operational expenses in control.
