Faurecia, the world’s number one supplier of seat frames, emissions control technologies, and vehicle interiors, approached Automated Logistics for a cross-borders solution to strategically handle shipments from Mexico.
Inability to track shipments in Mexico
Unnecessarily high inventory rates in response to the unknown arrival of each shipment
Multiple trucks hitting the same docks for daily deliveries
Collaborated with the Fraser team to determine what times and frequency worked best for them
Set up milk runs in Mexico and Texas to cut down on trucks and scheduled routes to maximize utilization of each consolidation truck
Compiled daily tracking reports to show where each shipment was located and provide its ETA
Created BOLS for consolidation trucks to know what freight they were carrying when they arrived for delivery
92.5% trailer utilization
Less trucks/congestion at Faurecia docks
Lower inventory and overall costs
