Customer Success During the Pandemic
The best way to demonstrate how the PE Business Scenario for the Consumer Products Industry works is through a customer experience. A large multinational consumer products company was struggling due to lack of transparency across their logistics ecosystem and the increasing volatility of the market conditions due to the pandemic. They found themselves mired in inefficiency with excessive manual administrative tasks that lead to errors and delays. A dependence on EDI data left them with outdated execution information limiting their ability to meet customer demands.
Hence, the company turned to SAP to modernize their supply chain transparency. Working together with the customer, SAP MaxAttention partnered with the SAP product development team and identified a quick win opportunity with SAP Logistics Business Network (LBN) and a partner industry cloud solution to provide logistics visibility based on a freight tracking solution. This provided real-time insights regarding freight orders in transit for full truck loads (FTL) and less than truck load (LTL) and they were able to achieve 100% onboarding of their fleet.
