A More Transparent Supply Chain - Manufacturing Industry Case Study

CASE STUDY

Manufacturing industry

Building an efficient supply chain powered by a dedicated premium van
and flexible deliveries across Europe

One of the leading European toolmaking manufacturers

A very important tool producer in Europe wanted to conduct a more sustainable, cost-efficient and transparent supply chain of end-to-end flows. The company had great challenges in accurately forecasting their supply chain activities and ensuring a reliable supply of end-products due to delays in delivering different goods. Their logistics operators spent a significant amount of time checking and monitoring where the goods were as there was a big lack of transparency of shipments’ statuses.

ONE PLATFORM, MANY BENEFITS

A performance-boosting dashboard

At Eurosender, we are among the pioneers developing digitalised logistics, going away from old ways done on paper. We are one of the first companies offering technologically advanced 21st-century full logistics solutions.

Our modern dashboard gives our clients complete autonomy to manage their transport operations, including an overview of all shipping orders – past and current ones – and their statuses.

A top-notch know-how

Our knowledge and years of experience in the logistics world enable our logistics operators to plan and coordinate even the most challenging and complex supply chain demands in the toolmaking industry acting as our client’s control tower.

Our logistics specialists do all-in-one. They plan daily schedules, making sure that no van travels empty or is stuck waiting for the load to arrive. They offer pre-and aftersales support at any stage.

Punctual daily deliveries to the supply-chain points across Europe are fundamental for the company’s supply chain to run smoothly. As they have regular routes within the supply chain to serve, we have created dedicated van lines, especially for their requirements. Every day, vans are dispatched from the company’s designated areas to the next location within the supply chain of the end-to-end flow.

They enable short delivery times with collections done in less than 3 hours and shipments delivered the very same or next day. This way the supply chain runs smoothly, without any undesired waiting times leading to higher costs.

With tailor-made solutions, Eurosender has helped to increase efficiency and productivity along the supply chain as our client’s employees can fully focus on their jobs.
