Pando Fulfillment Cloud for leading CPG enterprise

Ensuring optimized delivery planning 

Pando's Delivery Planning & Optimization solution allowed the organization to select the right contract types based on the volume of load and weight-based constraints. Using the AI/ML algorithm within our solution, the company was also able to maximize weight and volume utilization on each vehicle while optimizing for cost, route and SLAs. In addition to this, at the time of dispatch, Pando enabled the organization to solve for inefficiencies in route mapping by optimizing the process of clubbing consignments and unlocking the ability for them to prepare multi-drop route maps at the time of execution.

Digitalizing freight audit & payments

This allows for processes like truck entry into warehouse facilities, security gate checking, recording timestamps on loading of trucks, etc. to all be managed and carried out from within our system ensuring a clear trail of documentation and an unquestionable system of record. Pando's Freight Audit & Payment solution automatically checks checks invoices generated by the carrier against the CPG organization's own system of record to highlight discrepancies saving the company hours of manual effort and fast-tracking resolutions for any disputes.

Establishing end-to-end visibility of data

Using SIM and app-based tracking along with GPS, the company was able to track their trucks on a continuous basis to ensure real-time insights and visibility into movement of goods. The organization was able to access a summary of all tracking modes for on-road trucks via Pando's Fulfillment Monitor in order to be able to focus on and attend to priority shipments that have run into any trouble. In addition to this, the predictive and prescriptive layers within the solution allowed the CPG enterprise to look beyond just historical data to boost their progress.
