Midland Park, NJ, United States, 2009/08/24 - Roger Richard of Dachser provides detail on the importance of this software rollout and why selecting and implementing a supply chain software provider was a critical decision for Dacher’s North American operations.
“Software Provider IES, Ltd. has successfully achieved software rollouts at all of our North American facilities,” announces Roger Richard, U.S. Director of Compliance, Operations, and IT at Dachser. The logistics specialist employs over 18,000 employees at over 300 locations worldwide.
“Based on observations from our client base, the IES Web Tracking portal is superior to other products in the market.” Richard continues, “This client-facing portal encompasses complete supply chain visibility from purchase order management to end-to-end shipment tracking. This leap forward in technology is one of the many reasons why Dachser has a steadily increasing market-share and is moving to the forefront in the industry.”
Mr. Richard continues to explain how the IES software rollout is of particular importance to the logistics provider, “Dachser is a global company with a clear strategy toward increased automation. In the past two years, we have doubled the number of customers worldwide who use EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). The trend toward increased automation among our client base is also applicable for Dachser internally as well. Selecting and implementing a supply chain software provider for our North American operations was a critical decision. To put this in perspective, since we handle 43.3 million consignments a year globally, automation of systems communications is vital to our success as a growing, multinational company.”
“As an organization with annual sales of 3.6 billion Euros, it was essential that our North American supply chain software provider integrated with existing, proprietary systems. IES’s advanced knowledge of automation has allowed us to effectively interface with these platforms, keeping our North American operations in real-time communication with the 305 other Dachser locations worldwide. The IES rollout has been a significant milestone in the evolution of Dachser as a company and our strategic move toward process automation.”
Logistics specialist Dachser (dachser.com) employs over 18,000 employees at over 300 locations worldwide. The business model is based on the three pillars of International Logistics, European Logistics and Food Logistics. A high level of IT expertise, global integration of logistics services and outstanding infrastructure are major strengths of the company.
