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.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.

Earlier this week, FedEx said it is expanding its International First service for early deliveries with the addition of 31 new origin countries, which will bring the total number of origin markets for the service to 97.

Monday, December 22 is pegged as UPS's peak delivery day, as the company expects to deliver more than 34 million packages that day, adding that it expects to see six days in December top last year’s peak shipment day delivery record of 31 million packages.

The time has come again for less-than-truckload (LTL) general rate increases (GRI), with various carriers recently announced their respective rate hikes in recent days.
