A 60% failure rate.
We’re the other 40%.
- They understand the importance and reasons behind different transportation modes, real-time shipment visibility, proper deployment of IoT for maximum value, and analysis of spot market versus contracted rates to dramatically reduce transportation spend.
- They have been operators responsible for service levels and fulfillment in distribution networks with a myriad of systems containing siloed data – Warehouse Management Systems, Labor Management Systems, Automation Control Systems, Time Tracking Systems, Parcel Manifesting Systems, and others.
- They have implemented and managed manufacturing execution systems and understand the importance of throughput, process control, and how to drive visibility to exceptions.
- They are masters of capacity utilization and driving production volume while limiting production downtime and impending mechanical failures.
Expertise with every piece of the puzzle.
Our team is comprised of experts in the main visualization engines (Tableau, PowerBI, Cliqview, Domo, etc.) as well as ETL tools leveraged to weave multi-system data into a network-wide tapestry. We see the big picture and know how to visualize a data story that drives behavioral changes from purchasing, manufacturing, distribution, transportation, and customer service.
The team is 100% platform agnostic but as an example of our problem-solving prowess, we identified a gap in data visualization tools built specifically for the supply chain. That triggered MacGregor Partners to develop M.Toolbox, a real-time, supply chain-centric data warehouse that stores and harmonizes data and provides predictive alerts and actionable signals across your distribution and manufacturing network.
We are problem-solving aficionados.
Review parcel shipments to assess carton sizes and multi-carton shipments for bundling and consolidation opportunities. >> Reduced parcel spend by 20%.
Review automation and conveyance ROI challenges and determined that lack of information and signals to pallet build users bottlenecked throughput. >> Leveraged dashboards at each pallet build station to improve visual cues and signals. Reduced pallet build cycle time by 50%, which increased daily revenue and throughput by $310k.
Pickline slotting rework. >> Increased throughput from 250 cases per hour to 425 per hour, coupled six-figure labor savings annually.
Compare spot market versus contract/asset transportation across modes and lanes. >> Saved seven figures annually.
