How Univar Solutions Transformed the Delivery Experience

The world’s largest chemical distributor turned to project44’s Advanced Visibility Platform™ to meet a company-wide initiative centered on improving the delivery experience, reducing costs and making more data-driven decisions.

Challenge

Without timely shipments, Univar’s customers were forced to shut down manufacturing, sometimes costing them well over $100,000 per hour. With hundreds of thousands of annual shipments — and tens of thousands of clients — Univar needed real-time, high-quality tracking data to provide the visibility their customers require to plan production.

Solution

Univar chose project44 for its 100% digital infrastructure that includes multimodal tracking, seamless integration into their Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) system, and the ability to scale as shipping needs change. Their team immediately implemented tracking and exception management across over-the-road shipments (truckload and less-than-truckload). They soon added automated LTL pre-shipment and post-shipment processes, including dispatch and digital document retrieval.


Perfect the delivery experience for your customers.
