Transplace, Campbell Soup Partner on Transportation Management Software

Transplace, a provider of transportation management services and logistics technology, announced that Campbell Soup Company has selected the third party logistics (3PL) provider to manage all transportation management activities throughout the United States. Campbell will leverage Transplace’s proprietary transportation management system (TMS) to efficiently manage its domestic transportation operations in order to increase visibility, reduce transportation costs and achieve greater operational efficiencies. 

“Transplace brings deep experience and expertise in the consumer packaged goods industry along with comprehensive logistics technology and reporting capabilities,” said Anthony Fox, senior director, planning, warehousing and transportation, Campbell Soup Company. “Transplace will help drive continuous improvement within Campbell’s transportation operations.” 

Comprehensive real-time reporting will give Campbell increased visibility of its transportation network and allow them to view and analyze key performance data to better develop strategies for meeting its transportation goals. Campbell will also work collaboratively with Transplace to take advantage of additional cost savings opportunities, such as participation in the company’s TransMATCH co-shipping service, which offers organizations the opportunity to consolidate freight through collaboration with multiple shipper companies.

“For a global consumer packaged goods company such as Campbell, supply chain visibility and efficiency are critical to maintaining high customer service levels and business performance,” said Vincent Chiodo, senior vice president, Transplace. “We will work closely with Campbell to identify and take advantage of opportunities within its transportation operations to improve efficiencies and meet the company’s cost and service goals.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
