Accellos, a provider of supply chain execution software systems, has released a case study of its customer Newport-St Paul Cold Storage. The case study illustrates how the Minnesota-based third-party logistics (3PL) supplier has increased order accuracy and decreased customer support and labor costs since its implementation of Accellos’ 3PL software, Accellos One 3PL.
Using this system, Newport-St Paul Cold Storage has experienced several operational improvements, including:
•Streamlined operations with RF and EDI processes
•Increased business with no personnel changes
•Orders per day rose from 40-90 to 75-120
•Lines of order climbed from 60-200 to 15-1,000
•Ongoing average increase in pallets/cases per man-hour of 23%; as high as 33%
•Order accuracy rose to 99.999%
•Customer support costs decreased by 90%
•25% savings in labor costs
“With Accellos, we were able to automate the paperwork, streamline operations with RF and EDI processes, reduce labor requirements, and balance the competitive nature of the business we are in,” said Randy Lewis, Newport-St Paul Cold Storage director of operations. “We have not only been able to expand the amount of business we do, but also extend the complexity of the types of business we can accommodate.”
