Cloud lowers the cost of

entry for a TMS making

them available to the mid

market as well as enterprise

level companies.

Cloud/SaaS

their core applications to have

More companies will require

a tablet or phone version for

an increasingly mobile work

force. New OTM mobile apps

are available.

Mobility

With an aging driver pool

companies will need to plan

sooner and more often to

get their most optimal

transportation plans. Drones

& autonomous trucks will

not help in the near future.

Capacity Shortages

Too many companies still

cannot track all of their

shipments and lack visibility

into transportation spend.

Why Consider Oracle Transportation Management

© KPIT Technologies Limited

Need to lower transportation spend.

Using manual processes to support business.

Currently lack of visibility to process and goods in transit.

Have always been forced to choose between a 3PL or a TMS.

Need to increase Event Management visibility

Outsource their freight payment to a 3

rd

party.

Do not want to lend staff to IT projects for half a year or more.

Manage by Exception

Business process standardization.

Globally enabled and Scalable solution.

COST MANAGEMENT

• Minimize freight spend using logistics best practices

• Carrier Performance analysis to ensure low cost / kg /km at optimal service levels

SERVICE LEVEL MANAGEMENT

• Ensure in time and full deliveries to customers

• Ensure zero in-transit losses due to damages

• Visibility of deliveries to customers to plan for receipts viz. workforce planning

SUPPLY CHAIN SECURITY

• Control over logistics process to ensure secure supply chains

• Item Traceability till point of consumption

SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS

• Lower carbon emissions by ensuring vehicles adhere to emission norms

• Minimize driven miles and maximize truck loading to enable lower per kg /per km carbon emissions

Challenges – Primary Distribution

(15)

Customer’s Objective

Project Objective : To implement OTM to Improve Efficiencies and Strengthen Control on

Primary and Secondary Freight Execution

ROI Levers for OTM

Detention

Time Settlement Days Manual freight Errors due to Settlement

Framework for OTM configuration, Order Management, Tendering, Integration Set-up, Reports development, troubleshooting etc.

Optimization engine to optimize shipments based on cost and service level

Share of Business among service provider according to contract and removing manual error using preferred carrier per lane per

vehicle type

Automates the processes of internal and external freight payment

Errors due to Manual Share of business Improve Transit time of shipment 16 Increase Load Efficiency 2/10/2016

Execution Challenges Addressed

Real time event capture was crucial

Event time is captured by the people at Gate

Security Guards used Tablets for ease of Mobility

Most of the security guards have never used any computer

Simplified screens to add events and eliminate data entry errors

Gate Keepers are now using tablets to log gate events for 200+ shipments on a daily

basis.

Achievements

Primary Distribution Pilot site went live in 14 weeks and 2 weeks of infant support

Primary Distribution - 20 Dispatch locations and 35 Receiving locations rolled out in additional 6 weeks

Secondary Distribution - 6 stocking locations to 52 + distributors in 12 countries in middle east

Primary Distribution Achieved ROI in first 16 weeks of execution without ‘Planning’ module. ROI continues to be

tracked on :

Detention

Transit time

Freight approval process

Automatic and seamless payment interface

Reduction in Payment cycle

OTM helped client in rate comparison analysis and transporter scorecard which further helped in Rate Negotiations

Achieved 85% utilization (since vol utilization is difficult to achieve) without any manual intervention.

Further benefits:

Cost saving from automating the Control tower from Day1

Impact on Key Performance Indicators – Primary Distribution

2/10/2016 29

KPI Objective Baseline Target

Detention Charges factory & CFA level to enable Track Detention Charges at

actions for reduction 180K GBP/year

120K GBP/year in 2016 (33% reduction in 2016)

Cost/case plan & self- billing will minimize Higher adherence to optimized

cost of inefficiencies Plan 2016 (no baseline) Plan 2016 (63.14 GB pennies/case)

Invoice settlement days Drive cash discounts and better service levels through faster invoice processing

30 days for the transporter to collect the delivery documents +

63 Days payment terms

63 days payment terms from transporter self-billing in OTM

Penalties and lead time monitoring

Enforce penalties to transporters in the contract based on service

level and tracking of actual vs. agreed lead times

Not possible to track

Have zero penalties to

transporters with increased truck availability linked to below KPI.

>90% lead time compliance

Truck Placement efficiency Truck placement within 24h of call-up to the transporter 70% 90% (from H2 2015 onwards)

Freight covered through OTM Freight movement to be covered through OTM 0% 100% from August 2015 onwards

Client Contribution to Success

2/10/2016 30

Trust and positive approach of the client was one of the key point in the successful implementation within the

stipulated timeline

Client’s acceptance to improve their business process and aligning the users accordingly is appreciable.

Project Manager understanding of the business process and the management of getting infrastructure ready from VM

Server to micro level management eg. arranging tablets during EUT of gate keepers

Dedicated Change Management resource:

The Change management was very effectively planned

All pain areas from almost all the physical locations were gathered and aligned

On-time Data readiness
