Inbound Logistics: “Helping Del Monte Optimize its Transportation Network”
Helping Del Monte Optimize its Transportation Network
By partnering with Transplace’s Business Intelligence team, food products maker Del Monte was able to gain access to its entire data set, create automated reports around key metrics, and reduce overall transportation spend.
As one of the country’s largest producers, distributors and marketers of premium-quality, branded food products, Del Monte has a large number of shipments moving throughout its supply chain, resulting in a tremendous amount of data. Unfortunately, the company’s reporting procedures mostly involved manually updating spreadsheets—a time-consuming process where it could take weeks to produce a desired report. Del Monte recognized the need to automate its reporting process in order to make faster, data-driven business decisions and reduce transportation costs.
