JBF Consulting was called in to provide domain expertise in transportation processes and system configurations in the discount retail environment. The goal was to drive efficiencies in planning scenarios using a 5+-year-old OTM implementation. Preliminary evaluations revealed that the original system configurations were sub-par, resulting in less than optimal planning for inbound and outbound transport. Working side-by-side with an experienced Oracle transportation consultant, JBF helped to identify ways to reduce outbound fleet miles and planner workloads stemming from improvements in overall solution quality.Services included:

  1. Overall review of existing OTM implementation and usage
  2. Detailed evaluation of current system settings
  3. Identification of unused system capabilities
  4. Data testing
  5. Recommendations for future enhancements to drive additional cost savings
