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 parcels, LTL and truckload shipments a year on a system it had outgrown.
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.
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 TME 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.
