Fast Growing CPG Company Finds "Pop" with SCALABILITY, COST SAVINGS & IMPROVED SERVICE

ODW - Angies Case Study

 

LOWER TRANSPORTATION SPEND

THE CHALLENGE:

Without having best-in-class TMS optimization, realizing the full potential of transportation efficiency was a challenge. 

THE SOLUTION:

ODW Logistics built a process and provided the customer with visibility to every order through its proprietary Freightlink portal. Orders are managed to maximize consolidation opportunities and offer cost optimized routing while ensuring on-time delivery. Today, instead of one-off orders shipping separately as expensive LTL shipments, most are seamlessly combined to build full truck load shipments at a much lower per unit shipping cost. ODW manages this entire process.

THE RESULT

40% reduction in transportation costs in first 6 months equating to $315,000 in savings.

FASTER SPEED-TO-MARKET

THE CHALLENGE:

The existing single point of distribution and carrier network did not align with the customer’s manufacturing footprint and drove higher shipping costs and slower transit times. 

THE SOLUTION: OPTIMIZATION:

ODW set up a distribution network that ensures all customer orders are shipped from the most efficient location, which includes multiple warehouses around the US. To provide a fully optimized solution, ODW leverages 3 key points:

1. Technology – Freight Optimizer: 3G TMS provides tuned algorithms specific to the customer needs - enabling multi-stop delivery load building, pool distribution, and sophisticated supply chain networks.

2. Carrier Partnerships: ODW has over 5,000 truckload and 100 LTL carrier contracts for optimal routing.

3. People: The process and technology operates effectively with the right dedicated team to manage and provide continuous improvement efficiencies.

THE RESULT:

Increased on-time delivery in first 6 months to 98.5%.

DELIVER VALUE ADDED SERVICES IN KEY MARKETS

THE CHALLENGE:

A primary offering from the customer called ‘multi-packs’ is a high value/high growth product for retail stores. Constructing these kits was an expensive and highly labor intensive process prone to errors.

THE SOLUTION: ENGINEERING

The ODW Solutions Team reviewed the current co-packing process to pin point inefficiencies in the operations. To address the problem areas identified, ODW implemented an automated multi-pack build process. The redesigned kitting sequence reduced labor by the equivalent of 4 FTEs. 

THE RESULT:

50% reduction of cost-per-case in first 6 months.
