Braskem

Braskem enjoys full automated spot transport sourcing with appointment scheduling while substantially reducing supply chain backoffice

CUSTOMER

Braskem is the No. 1 petrochemical company in Latin America and the only integrated petrochemical company for the first and second generation of thermoplastic resins in Brazil. Braskem's units are present in Brazil, the United States, Mexico and Germany, in addition to 16 regional offices in other countries in order to develop partnerships and create integrated solutions for its customers. Its 40 factories have a total production capacity of over 16 million metric tons per year. Its production is focused on polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyvinylchloride (PVC) resins and basic chemicals but Braskem also produces green PE from sugarcane, from 100% renewable sources.

The company's main competitive advantage is production scale and operational efficiency.

"Automated's spot transport sourcing module integrated with appointment scheduling provides us with unprecedented operational and costs efficiency in our supply chain and contributes to our production scalability. We reduced our logistics backoffice staff to 25% while enjoying improvements in carrier relations and customers' supply chain visibility and satisfaction."

> Too high supply chain admin spend

> Sub-optimal spot transport sourcing process; so we needed to rely more on fixed transport service contracts at higher rates

> We were not always sure we used the best priced carrier for each lane or shipment

> Our supply chain organization couldn't effectively support our scalable production

> No statistics on OTD performance vs. transport rates
