Kollaras specialises in providing a global beverage solution and has a portfolio covering the world’s most well known brands as well as supporting Australian brands. As a distributor of alcoholic beverages, Kollaras relies heavily on transport and freight.
At the consultation stage with Kollaras, it was identified that our client had multiple systems in place causing duplication of effort and work. Having multiple systems increased the risk of inaccuracies through manual tasks, little to no visibility of end-to-end processes and was labour intensive.
Integration through FreightExchange was implemented as a priority to eliminate manual task and provide visibility across all logistic operations. FreightExchange was able to integrate with existing systems and third parties to reduce double handling of data across Kollaras’ supply chain. FreightExchange allowed visibility of end-to-end management through integrations into their inventory for the automation of SKU management and load consolidations. Integrating with vendors and third parties allowed automated invoice reconciliation and a way to manage and spot check cost discrepancies.
FreightExchange’s centralised dashboard replaced our client’s original method of using multiple systems to track, monitor and manage bookings. Integrations with vendors were first introduced in a low-risk area of Kollaras’ supply chain network and progressively rolled out to manage their intermodal operations. Based on the information provided, we are delighted to offer a platform that will integrate with your existing systems to:
Provide instant, fully loaded, itemised freight costs for international and domestic movements, allow Kollaras to manage spot based pricing for imports/ exports, add and manage complex contracts with freight forwarders, 3PLs and domestic logistics providers, and Enable process automation to eliminate low value, repetitive tasks, and Track goods and costs in transit end to end.
We decided to extend our usage of the FreightExchange platform because: Having a central point of order placement for all freight enables better cost management as well as volume, route and frequency analysis. It Gave users the ability to select the appropriate carrier and service level to meet their requirements. The platform provides an intuitive user experience and we were able to implement the trial with minimal training. We were able to configure fields to support our accounting processes easily. The system allows easy reporting on costs versus quote. Any discrepancy can be reported and addressed effortlessly.
