The company is embarking on this digital initiative to bring increased agility and collaboration across their inbound supply chain. With a goal of driving a significant reduction in delivery lead time, reducing average cost per unit, and improving their team's productivity significantly, Accuride plans to remove friction from their inbound ocean import process while increasing visibility and collaboration with their freight forwarders. Some of the success metrics the team at Accuride expects to achieve through the adoption of Pando Fulfillment Cloud include:

  • Accessorial reduction of $200 USD per container for 3,000 inbound containers annually
  • Realization of end-to-end visibility of inbound fulfillment network
  • Optimization of ocean routes and achieving greater competitive pricing from carrier-base
  • Reduction of billing errors through freight audit while simultaneously increasing clarity to a documented trail of savings
  • Detailed financial visibility down to the accessorial line-item level to identify waste and achieve greater efficiencies
  • Documentable cost savings in all aspects of the international container transit process.
