CASE STUDY PREVIEW
TVH Parts — a part of the TVH Group — is a global business operating from 65 sites. The company supplies material handling, industrial equipment and agricultural equipment parts. TVH Parts sells in 172 countries and has more than 25,000 customers.
Creating carrier-compliant transportation labels for high volumes of shipments
TVH Parts ships high volumes of parcels every day from multiple sites around the world. Ensuring timely delivery is a key success factor — 95 percent of all orders are for next-day delivery. TVH Parts makes deliveries by road, air and sea.
Remaining compliant with changing carrier requirements and/or manually keying in information on carrier shipping software systems was a drain on company resources, particularly given the large volumes shipped. TVH Parts wanted to deploy one system that could support the company’s shipping operations worldwide. This included printing compliant transportation labels for parcel and LTL carriers and sending compliant EDI data to carriers.
Automating transportation labels leads to efficiency gains and decreased operation costs
TVH Parts saw a clear gain in efficiencies by significantly reducing the time needed to produce transport labels. This also lead to a decrease of operational costs. The solution’s ability to generate generic transport label also brought about efficiency gains because this used to be a manual job for all LTL carriers.
