TTI is streamlining its distribution center processes by managing shipments, exports, and export controls with transportation management software from AEB.
The main problem was that the legacy software lacked comprehensive documentation and workflow descriptions. The AEB team responded by helping TTI with extensive research and analysis to gather the necessary data, identifying potential areas of improvement such as collective customs declarations.
The systems were set up and integrated through the AEB interface. An extensive testing and training phase, with the legacy system running in parallel mode for part of the time, brought errors down to a minimum prior to launch.
The AEB solution is having a positive impact on productivity in the logistics center, especially with the export processes, which are playing an ever greater role as export volumes escalate. Integration of the systems has cut down on manual processes, making the work of TTI employees easier. Besides boosting efficiency in the warehouse and optimizing export processes, the solution also offers clear economic benefits. TTI is spending less on maintenance and support than it did for the three earlier solutions, saving valuable resources. Faster label printing and enhanced productivity is also making life easier for the team, especially in the hectic hours before the daily cutoff. In AEB, TTI has not only found a reliable partner, it has also built a foundation for continued growth and success.
