Cummins Accelerates Shipping, Improves Visibility and Gains Control Over Transportation Costs with Logistyx GSA

Cummins, Inc. designs, manufactures, sells and services diesel and alternative fuel engines around the world. Cummins service customers through its network of 600 company-owned and independent distributor facilities and more than 7,400 dealer locations in more than 190 countries and territories.

Business Challenge

For global shippers like Cummins, managing huge numbers of global and local carriers can be extremely challenging and time consuming. Cummins had difficulty managing carrier information and shipment specifications. Producing shipping labels and transmitting shipping information according to each carrier’s specifications was very challenging.

Cummins needed to take control of their shipping, streamline operations and improve warehouse efficiency.

Solution

Cummins chose Logistyx Technologies’ transportation management solution, GSA, to streamline operations. The GSA system provides real-time production of shipping labels and carrier documents, shipment consolidation, freight calculations and event tracking, all of which has helped Cummins to improve warehouse efficiency.

Results

  • Process times have been reduced
  • Labeling errors have been eliminated
  • Cummins staff now as full visibility and tracking for all shipment activity
  • GSA’s automated freight cost calculation have made customer invoicing much more efficient.

“Logistyx delivers real time label printing and shipment consolidation adding efficiency to the shipping process. Shipping labels are produced at the packaging stage, process time is reduced and errors rarely occur as a result.” Kristian van Loock, Logistics Coordinator Cummins
