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

  • Efficiency Improvement

  • 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.
