Optimize and Align Transportation Procurement with your Business Needs
Comprehensive Procurement Solutions to Optimize your Business while Running your Business
The world’s most successful industries recognize that having a single multi-function technology solution that aligns complex transportation logistics with their overall procurement strategy is critical for streamlining operations and gaining a competitive edge. Transportation procurement, sourcing, bidding, awarding, contracting, and managing suppliers are complex, demanding, high-stakes processes requiring real-time data and sophisticated management tools.
How do leading Distribution Logistics organizations secure the right carriers, balance the critical variables of cost, risk analysis, supplier performance, and still achieve 100 percent spend under management? They turn to JAGGAER. JAGGAER’s Transportation and Logistics Suite is optimized not only for Distribution Logistics and services, but for the entire organization’s procurement needs. Our multi-faceted solution allows a company to optimize its business while operating the critical infrastructure that runs the business.
While there may be differences in logistics procurement strategies between trucking, LTL sourcing, ocean sourcing, air freight sourcing, and multi-modal transportation procurement, the basic elements of making the right decisions and managing suppliers and events are the same. Our solutions far outstrip the capabilities of Transportation Management Systems (TMS) or a standard ERP suite. JAGGAER’s proven, state-of-the-art solutions have been developed for all modes of transportation and are in use by some of the largest logistics companies in the world.
Facing rising transportation costs, an increasingly complex supplier network and an inconsistent supply continuity, a leading Logistics company had outgrown its manual spreadsheet business management solution. The Company operated from multiple locations, each with its own network of carriers, to deliver finished products to customers. These carriers would occasionally interrupt the supply chain with unforeseen mishaps, introducing risk into the equation. Minimal contract terms were in place and there was no system to hold carriers accountable or even track their performance. The current model lacked end-to-end visibility into how the company made decisions and spent funds, its capabilities would soon be outstripped by business growth.
The Logisitics company’s CPO turned to JAGGAER’s automated transportation and logistics solution suite to standardize and centralize their procurement organization for decreased cost, consistent service levels, more governance, and risk mitigation. The solution suite provided a complete view into spending and the criteria from making those decisions, while tying a newly sourced supplier to a lock solid service contract.
