Bolloré partners with Winddle on optimising transport
Bolloré Logistics, a major player in the logistics and international transport sector, has decided to collaborate with Winddle on optimising transport operations through integrated management of product orders and supplier collaboration.
Having complete visibility of all supply chain operations is crucial for any player in the international transport sector. Even the slightest disruption in information flows can have a significant impact on the smooth running of operations, leading to potential delays and additional costs.
Collaborative end-to-end management of transport operations is particularly important at the purchase/sales order and product/SKU levels. By working on a common basis, shippers, suppliers, and carriers can avoid duplication of data entry, non-centralized documents, and other inefficiencies. This coordination between the production and transport phases enables effective handover and ensures streamlined operations.
“We’re getting more and more requests from our customers in terms of visibility and management of purchase orders, in all sectors of activity. Winddle’s flexibility enables us to integrate it easily with Bolloré Logistics’ TMS systems, and to respond on a standard basis to the various customer SOPs” emphasizes Nathalie Léger, Global VP for the Beauty and Luxury Goods sectors.
Bolloré Logistics has been providing its customers with transport visibility for a long time. Now, integrating PO management with this visibility is crucial for customers to better comprehend the performance of their supply chain. They can view indicators at the product purchase order or sales order level and use them for forecasting or monitoring actual dates, costs or environmental impact.
