Their customer-centric approach, innovative mindset, and exceptional product range have made them industry leaders across construction, manufacturing, and beyond. Let’s explore how they improved their logistics journey with the help of FreightPOP.

Key Logistics Challenges

In the complex world of shipping and logistics, this adhesive company encountered several significant obstacles:

  1. Scattered Shipping Data: There wasn't an efficient way to track or access shipping and carrier information across their systems.
  2. Rate Inaccuracies: Their TMS's weight-focused system led to frequent inaccuracies in shipping rates.
  3. Time-Consuming Audits: The team was overwhelmed with manual freight shipment auditing.
  4. Fragmented Invoice Processing: Handling carrier invoices through emails drained significant resources and time.

The Company’s Wishlist

To overcome these hurdles, the company sought:

  • A system offering precise control with permissions-based user access.
  • A way to streamline access to shipping and carrier data without hopping between various websites.
  • Seamless integration with their SQL-based ERP system.
  • A platform compatible with both Canadian and U.S. freight carriers.
