Elkem’s Businesses Challenges and Expectations
The story between Elkem and MIXMOVE started in 2017, when Elkem was conducting a project of integration logistics management systems called “LDI” for “Logistics Data Integration”.
At this time, Elkem’s business challenges were:
To reduce manual processes and flows of all the logistics information (Emails, PDF, Excel files,...)
To improve their end-to-end logistics visibility with one unique control tower
To digitalise their operations
As a consequence, Elkem were looking for:
Logistics Costs Reduction
Improved data quality
How Elkem did build their Logistics Control Tower with MIXMOVE?
To answer Elkem’s business challenges, the existing logistics systems, including Elkem’s TMS with the WMS of Euro Nordic Logistics (Elkem’s 3PL provider), have been integrated using the MIXMOVE SaaS Platform.
The implementation took about 11 months with 3 partial go-lives.
Elkem’s benefits of using MIXMOVE today
Integrating the transportation booking process
Tracking of items/container locations
Better data precision
Less errors and less communication by moving from multiple manual data entry to electronic communication between information systems
