Plaskolite Sees $2M in Annual Savings With Optimized Transportation Solution

Plaskolite Case Study

With the right third-party logistics (3PL) provider, however, your supply chain doesn't need to be a hindrance to scaling your business.

CHALLENGE

Plaskolite, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic sheets, was scaling quickly and needed a 3PL that could provide innovative solutions to optimize their $40M annual transportation spend.

Their challenges included:

  • Poor supply chain visibility due to insufficient data gathering
  • Limited technology to provide innovative shipping and transportation solutions
  • Multiple acquisitions that increased supply chain complexity

SOLUTION

Plaskolite needed a 3PL to help them reimagine what its supply chain could look like. ODW Logistics provided the following:

  • Network Analysis: ODW's Network Analysis identified gaps in Plaskolite's current transportation strategy and proposed alternative solutions to optimize costs and shipping efficiencies.
  • Dynamic Bid Management: ODW leveraged best-in-class technology, more effectively used available data, and accessed its large network of carriers to both reduce costs and deliver better service.
  • Dedicated Strategic Account Team: ODW implemented a dedicated account team of senior transportation specialists to align with Plaskolite's goals and optimize supply chain solutions. ODW also provided strategic support, which included shifting the focus from the short-term goal of driving rate savings to improving overall supply chain efficiency.
  • Shipping Optimization: ODW improved accuracy and process efficiency via a fully integrated EDI solution. ODW implemented order entry process changes, improved production and shipping schedule visibility, and combined smaller loads into cost-saving full-truckload shipments.

RESULT

  • Labor Savings: Plaskolite saved $120,000 annually in labor costs (the equivalent of three FTEs).
  • Scaled Support: ODW Logistics scaled to meet Plaskolite's growth, adding 14,000 shipments in two months with no disruption to service.
  • Transportation Savings: $2.1M in 2020 | $2.3M in 2019
