TMS and Freight Bill Audit Solutions Save Team Labor and Improve Efficiencies
New Freedom, PA. and Richmond, VA – October 5, 2023 – Nexterus, a world-class supply chain management and third-party logistics (3PL) services provider, announces that Dunlop Protective Footwear, the world’s leading innovator of protective footwear, are partnering to automate transportation processes to better serve customers. Deploying the Nexterus TMS and automating freight bill audit and payment processes has saved Dunlop Boots tens of thousands of dollars in freight costs and hundreds of hours of labor.
“Dunlop Protective Footwear was doing most of their freight management processes manually, such as calling carriers to find truck capacity, contracting with carriers, and tracking shipments,” says Evan Halpern, Warehouse Manager, Dunlop Boots. “The partnership with Nexterus will help automate this process, better serve our customers and evolve our logistics process to the next level.”
“We manage Dunlop’s transportation processes using our proprietary Transportation Management System (TMS) and have saved the company over six percent in freight costs,” says Chris Schramm, Director of Sales and Accounts, Nexterus. “We have also opened up doors for Dunlop to use new carriers from our vetted carrier network, so they have more quality carriers to choose from.”
Nexterus has automated over 75% of Dunlop’s manual processes in its transportation operations. In the freight payment process, Nexterus deployed its pre-audit services to identify invoice discrepancies and errors. Invoices were automatically matched with purchase orders and shipping documents. Then, electronic payment methods streamlined payments, enhancing accuracy and ensuring no money is left on the table. Automating the freight bill audit and pay process helps streamline operations, reduce errors, and improve efficiency in managing transportation costs.
