Logistyx TMS Enhances Transportation Planning

PL Developments recovers $1.5 million in transportation savings.

PL Developments (PLD) is a leading manufacturer of over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals and healthcare products serving virtually every major retailer in the U.S. With manufacturing and fulfillment operations encompassing 12 warehouses and 1.2 million sq. ft. of space, PLD was managing transportation planning for 50,000 parcel, LTL and truckload shipments a year on a system it had outgrown.

Business Challenge

PLD’s transportation team was working in a decentralized manner, with carrier routing decisions being made by staff at each of its locations, who were relying on multiple, non-integrated systems to manage their work.

Solution

PLD already implemented Oracle EBS to manage much of its operations, but also chose Oracle OTM for LTL and TL shipments, Logistyx Audit to automate their freight invoices and the Logistyx TMS for their parcel shipping operations.Read this case study to find out how PLD integrated Logistyx shipping software and audit solutions with its Oracle ERP and OTM solutions to create a centralized platform that has dramatically streamlined transportation planning, audit and payment.

Logistyx Software Accelerates International Shipping by 80%

Gyrus Olympus reduces export document preparation time by 80%.

Challenge

Olympus is one of the world’s leading suppliers of medical visualization and energy systems for surgical procedures with major distribution operations in the U.S., Germany, Canada, Australia and Japan.Olympus had automated domestic shipping, but export shipping was still largely a manual process. International orders were diverted from the general workflow to be handled staff, who were also using compliance data from several manual sources which made the risk of non-compliance too severe.

Solution

Logistyx Ship-IT™ international parcel shipping software was configured to produce a broader set of export documents and handle the AES filing process.

Benefits

  • Accelerated shipping with reduced labor
  • 80% reduction in time spent processing export orders, now processed as quickly as domestic orders
  • Accurate, compliant, professional export documents
