Sandvik Materials Technology has decided to expand their existing Primelog TMS platform and invest in Primelog’s modules for Freight Spend Management.
The installation will replace several legacy systems, while creating a solid business intelligence solution for analysis of their freight spend. This will increase Sandvik Materials Technology’s cost control through a more efficient process.
Eric Jansson, manager of Logistics Process Management at Sandvik Materials Technology, says, “Having complete and reliable information optimizes our ability to make the right decisions and take full control of our freight costs on a global scale.”
The new modules also enable a vast improvement of Sandvik’s environmental performance management and monitoring. “We are an environmentally aware company and have committed to decreasing our CO2 emissions by 20 percent until the year 2020. Our shipments have a significant impact in this area,” explains Eric Jansson.
Sandvik Materials Technology is a developer and producer of advanced stainless steels, special alloys, titanium and other high-performance materials. A Primelog customer since 2009, Sandvik Materials Technology wanted to have central control of its shipping contracts and follow up all shipping costs globally in one system.
Primelog’s CEO Lena Ridström says, “We are very proud to continue to supply Sandvik Materials Technology with an expanded solution that helps them reach their goals for delivery precision, improved cost control and environmental compliance.”
