Connecting Shippers, Carriers, Freight Forwarders, and Custom Brokers globally to increase service levels, lower inventories, and connect International and Domestic Logistics Operations
Dallas, TX – June 25, 2009 – One Network Enterprises, a pioneer in community-based on demand supply chain solutions, has introduced its new global supply chain solution, enabling global container and shipment prioritization capabilities designed to increase service levels, lower inventories, reduce supply variability, and minimize detention costs and other port fees by providing multi-leg container visibility and prioritization. According to Gartner, One Network’s Demand Driven Logistics solution is “visionary” and these capabilities further extend the networked global end-to-end transportation product footprint.
The new solution will help One Network’s global customers by providing:
- Global visibility and accurate container status information in a centralized solution
- Automated and coordinated container prioritization at the port based upon a customer’s Plant, Manufacturing, Distribution Center, and/or store needs, capacities, and detention costs and other port fees
- Exception based notification when execution deviates from plan or has a potential negative impact on the plan
- Reduction of information flow latency among the multiple parties involved in an international movement (Shipper, Carrier, Freight, Forwarder, Customs, etc.)
- Improved execution management since delivery issues are highlighted proactively to enable shipper personnel to focus on the right issues helping reduce supply variability
“With this release the Demand Driven Logistics solution provides our customers the ability to connect their international and domestic transportation operations with their supply and demand,” says Terry Turner, One Network President, “In many large companies this is a disconnected process across many ERP, transportation planning, and 3rd party systems resulting in informational latencies that in turn results in excess inventory, costly detention costs, and de-centralized planning and execution. We are seeing a trend toward companies integrating their international and domestic transportation operations with their supply and demand and believe we are one of the few companies that are architected to deliver a fully integrated solution.”
The Global Container and Shipment Prioritization capabilities boost One Network’s presence as a full-life cycle global logistics solution. By deploying the solution companies can expect to improve service levels, reduce inventory, reduce costs, and increase productivity.
