Rolling Meadows, Ill. (June 25, 2018) – Logistyx Technologies (www.logistyx.com), a leader in Transportation Management Execution™ (TME) systems, today announced it has been selected as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2018 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. Logistyx was honored for its work with Service Lighting’s LightBulbs.com, helping the online superstore double sales and shipping volume during its peak season without adding staff.
“Shipping was our biggest bottleneck at LightBulbs.com. We needed to find a way to automate our process and increase productivity,” said Paul McLellan, President of Service Lighting/LightBulbs.com. “We strive to use cutting-edge technology, and really appreciated the fact that we could configure Logistyx shipping software to meet our specific needs while eliminating manual labor and data entry errors. As a result, when our sales doubled year over year in the fourth quarter, we were able to absorb the spike in shipping without adding staff.”
By implementing Logistyx shipping software, integrated with dimensioning systems to automatically capture and upload package measurements for carrier rate calculation, Service Lighting eliminated multiple steps in shipment processing and gained a 5X increase in productivity – all while reducing its number of shipping stations by 66 percent. The company was also able to reallocate employees to other areas in the warehouse that needed help.
“Logistyx is focused on delivering advanced technology solutions that provide flexibility and empower businesses to optimize shipping and enhance customer service,” said Ken Fleming, Chief Operating Officer at Logistyx. “Honors like the SDCE 100 validate the emphasis that Logistyx places on working with businesses to capitalize on our multi-carrier shipping solutions to uncover opportunities for smarter, value-driven decisions.”
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
“We want to congratulate the winners of this year’s Top 100 for their successful and innovative projects, which serve as models to companies of all sizes what is achievable in their supply chains,” says John Yuva, Editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Regardless of company size, these projects are best-in-class examples of the types of efficiencies and bottom-line results that supply chain executives should be striving toward in their own operations. Our 2018 winners provide a roadmap for how to get there.”
