In transportation, truck, rail, ocean, and air carriers navigate many levels of complexity moving freight from one destination to another. Logistics providers manage transportation and logistics activities, warehousing, packaging, and customs clearance. Transporting goods often requires various carriers, freight forwarders, and other entities especially for last-mile deliveries so their financial processes must operate across multiple locations and diverse supply chain partners. Maintaining real-time visibility into inventory, optimizing supply chain operations, and ensuring accurate financial reporting are critical to success. With a modern cloud ERP, our transportation and logistic clients gain a unified and streamlined platform that reduces costs and provides the foundation for immediate revenue growth.
Business Impact for Transportation & Logistics Companies
Myers-Holum uses a phased-in ERP approach unique to each company that helps transportation and logistics companies benefit quickly from NetSuite’s core functionalities. The first big “win” for many transportation and logistic companies is moving to a single system for monitoring cash flow, revenues, and their global operations. With all operational data in one place, it’s easier to identify what is impacting cash flow and revenue. Further optimization and leveraging available features means companies see many more benefits following their implementation.
“Myers-Holum recently worked with a large global logistics provider that specialized in moving raw material commodities. “They needed a systematic way of tracking contracts between suppliers, carriers, and buyers. Similarly, they were looking for a solution that brings better visibility to the operational cycle of each deal as goods move between locations. We implemented NetSuite and then helped the company tie all its processes together on a single ERP platform.”
