Premium, ad hoc, or expedited freight is a common occurrence in the automotive supply chain. In such cases, Shippers often succumb to premium rates to avoid any disruption to the production schedules. Cargobase users who operate under such severe time pressure often require immediate access to view freight space and rates from their preferred logistics providers, along with a proper procurement or approval process in place. The Cargobase TMS platform is purpose-built to meet these extreme conditions, to ensure the needs of operational staff and that of their management are met. As a result, operations spend less time organizing shipments, whilst being able to choose from more options, which leads to both reduced operational and freight costs. A total win-win.
Pre-production is a known Achilles heel for many automotive companies. Challenges include the fact that this phase is often not standardized and not managed by logistics professionals. For instance, engineering team or sales teams could be in charge of this phase and they may have logistics requirements, but not have the logistics know-how or tools available to request for such services, or there isn’t a controlled procurement process in place, nor a budget set aside or available. Several automotive part suppliers use the Cargobase TMS platform to establish control and have visibility on these logistics requirements. Our “Quick Request” feature - a shortened form of a quote request can be completed by non-logistics personnel to furnish us with basic details of their logistics needs. The requirements are then sent to the logistics team that functions as a control tower to validate, source, and execute the most appropriate freight service.
