Sumosor IT: Simplifying Supply Chain
An Indonesian distribution company was facing issues regarding the management of orders and defining the delivery path according to the orders. Sumosor IT’s Transport Management System (TMS) proved to be a path-breaker in addressing these issues. TMS allowed them to optimize the capacity of cost with the type of delivery vehicle and also check which vehicles would be navigable on which routes and then plan the delivery vehicle and routes automatically by leveraging the logic that has already been included in the system. Sometimes, trucks have to carry more than their advised capacity to reach their target. To meet this requirement, TMS allows the truck to carry the extra load when necessary. "This helped them reduce their number of delivery vehicles by 30 percent within six months,” adds Vera, Director of Operation at Sumosor IT. Additionally, they were also able to monitor deliveries and make amends in case of failed deliveries. This is one of the many success stories that Sumosor IT has been able to sculpt due to their high-quality products.
