3 Ways to Profit by Automating Manual Supply Chain Processes


July 15, 2014

Does your team spend hours a day-each-on manual updates?

You may have tried to automate, only to hear it isn’t possible. But worker automation is VERY possible, and organizations across the supply chain and around the world are saving significant time and money with Kapow’s integration and work automation platform.

Download this whitepaper and learn three ways your organization can:

  • Automate handling payment processes - assess your own organization by organizing a review of your receivables process. If you need to provide multiple documents prior to payment, include those steps in your review.
  • Automate responding to email - review your customer-facing service organizations and seek cost containment opportunities from automatically processing email-but cost containment isn’t the only possibility.
  • Automate procurement processes - examine high-volume manual updates to partner web portals and evaluate replacing those updates with a direct integration using Kapow automation. Download the white paper now.

A number of key topics impacting the freight transportation and logistics marketplace were front and center at a panel at the Council of Supply Chain Management Annual Conference in San Antonio last week.

The relationships between third-party logistics (3PL) service providers and shippers are seeing ongoing developments due in large part to the continuing emergence and sophistication of omni-channel retailing. That was one of the key findings of The 19th Annual Third-Party Logistics Study, which was released by consultancy Capgemini Group, Penn State University, and Korn/Ferry International, a global talent advisory firm.

Optimism in the form of increasing profits was a key takeaway in the Annual Survey of Third-Party Logistics (3PL) CEOs, released earlier this week at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Annual Conference in San Antonio.

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in August saw a 1.6 percent increase in August on the heels of a 1.5 percent increase in July. The August SA index––at 132.6 (2000=100)––stands as a new SA high, with November 2013’s 131.0 now the second best month recorded.

Carload volumes saw a 5 percent jump compared to the same week a year ago at 302,178, and intermodal volumes hit a new weekly U.S. record at 279,777 trailers and containers.
