Shippers in the process industries who use automated railcar fulfillment software can also save money by improving efficiency. "If, for example, distributors want to have 12 railcars on location ready to go to fill an order, the software will determine that they may actually need to have 18 railcars in inventory—with three en route and three empties returning to keep an average of 12 on location," says Gary Neights, director of product management for Elemica, a global provider of supply chain solutions for the process industries.
About Inbound Logistics
When Inbound Logistics produced its first issue in 1981, transportation and logistics were back-room silo functions and the term “supply chain” didn’t exist. The ideas we advocated—realigning business by better matching supply to demand, and speeding and reducing inventory—were diametrically opposed to what most were practicing. By staying true to our educational mission and through the efforts of a passionate staff, IL became the informational change agent for reinventing supply chain processes, and a catalyst for this new overall approach to business operations.
