The Newark Group is an integrated global producer of 100 percent recycled paperboard and paperboard products. The Newark Group wanted to replace its current transportation management system with one that enabled them to have carriers, rates, lanes and accessorials online and available to all TNG shippers, thus improving the bottom line. Their challenge is to find a transportation management service with the functionality necessary to improve the bottom line. They chose IBM Sterling Transportation Management System. The results of implementing IBM Sterling Transportation were provides integrated, comprehensive supply chain execution, improves bottom line by allowing the company to tender sequentially to lower-cost carriers first and improves efficiency of logistics and operations, thus reducing shipping costs.
