case study - Automotive Supplier


the problem

By trying to manage their own inbound logistics and carrier negotiations, they inhibited their ability to concentrate on their core competencies - production and manufacturing. They struggled in allocating transportation costs at the part level, managing freight bills and accurately forecasting their budget.

A logistics overhaul was necessary - The challenges facing this customer were costly and their internal resources and time were limited.

Value Proposition

Palogix’s experienced team quickly gathered necessary part data, interfaced with all suppliers and established a baseline model of the customer’s existing network. Our Logistics Engineering Team performed an analysis of the customer’s baseline model and created an optimization plan with generated cost savings.

Our Leadership Team developed a detailed value proposition, outlining the execution plan and guaranteed savings. An agreement was made on Dec 17th, 2012 and a “Go-Live” date was set for Feb 11, 2013. This initiated the first launch of seven manufacturing plants.
