Loadstar

A global manufacturer of aftermarket aircraft refitting was losing money in the freight spend through lack of enforcement of their shipping business rules.

  • In two months, using LoadStar, the initial set of sites were operating and the company had rule enforcement and could control freight spending.
  • The process is as simple as the easiest carriers to get routing, rates and bookings for all of the selected carriers.

As new sites come on, the company anticipates saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in the first year in business rule enforcement alone.

Perimeter

  • A US Air Force PBL contract, reported a $57M decrease in inventory cost using marginal analysis on deployment kits
  • USCG R&D Center study (Rodriguez) savings of $180M would be obtained from rotary wing aircraft inventories using marginal analysis
  • A USAF cargo plane tiger team demonstrated that Ao could be increased to 70% from 56% with inventory investment saving of $137M using marginal analysis

Using Perimeter, in almost all cases where marginal analysis is applied, customers achieve a fifty percent or greater maximum inventory reduction at equal or better service level.

Downstream

A regional airline needed a better way of managing and delivering commissary items from their main distribution facility to more than 60 airport branches scattered across the United States.

  • Poor fill rates and lack of delivery performance by the airline’s main distribution center caused the branches to place frequent fax orders and constantly inflate order quantities
  • Receiving and acting on branch orders, and using this information to manage inventory levels in the DC was a time consuming and inaccurate process

Using Downstream, the airline branches can now see what inventory is available in real time, and use this information to create accurate replenishment orders, and using the team’s distribution solution, their orders are now on time. These improvements allowed the branches to abandon their old practice of ordering frequently, and over ordering, which allowed the airline corporate to lower inventory levels and related costs in their outsourced distribution center. By the end of the first year, with the help of CloudLogix, the airline was able to reduce their monthly rolling inventory by 50%, from $1.1 million to $550,000.00.

Control Tower

A global manufacturer of aircraft assemblies was losing money in the order-to-cash cycle through lack of enforcement of their business rules with their cheap generic suppliers.

  • In one month, using Control Tower, the initial set of sites were operating and the company had rule enforcement and could control freight spend.
  • As new sites came on, the company saved millions of dollars in the first year in business rule enforcement alone.
