GEODIS is a worldwide transport and logistics leader with over a century of experience and a highly structured customer approach. GEODIS' vision is to be the growth partner for its clients by helping them overcome logistical constraints. They achieve this through proven expertise across five lines of business: Supply Chain Optimization, Freight Forwarding, Contract Logistics, Distribution & Express and Road Transport.
When a multinational oil and gas company needed a better way to connect to their extensive supplier network, they turned to their Logistics Service Provider (LSP), GEODIS. By leveraging MPO’s Multi-Party Orchestration platform, with robust solutions, such as the supply chain control tower, GEODIS was able to connect to over 1,000 suppliers and carriers, gain real-time visibility and exceptions management, and automated control over import and export trade documents for international orders. Through the MPO platform, they achieved real-time, continuous control over the flow of supply chain activities (“Customer Chain Control”), enabling GEODIS to optimize every purchase order against service levels, inventory, transportation, and costs. In so doing, they were able to significantly enhance their customer's efficiency and generate incredible cost-savings.
This mini-case story offers a snapshot of the challenge, solution, and results GEODIS was able to achieve for their customer.
