Transplace, a leading provider of transportation management services (TMS) and logistics technology, announced it has been selected by Cummins Inc., a corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute and service engines and related technologies, as its lead logistics provider for the Power Generation and Emission Solutions Business Units.
Transplace, through a unique applied combination of technology, optimized processes and human capital will assume the daily transportation management of Cummins Power Generation and Cummins Emission Solutions respective supply chains – from raw materials/sub-assembly suppliers through distribution and to customer final delivery. Transplace’s on demand TMS will be employed for shipment planning, optimization, execution, tracking and visibility, and the establishment of a set of logistics management best practices to monitor and measure the performance of Transplace’s transportation network as well as specific supplier compliance metrics associated with Cummins’ raw material suppliers.
“We were looking for a logistics provider that could help manage our transportation needs and increase efficiency and visibility throughout our supply chain,” said Adam Hall, Director of Global Supply Chain Solutions for Cummins Power Generation. “Transplace brings experience, industry knowledge and an innovative approach that we believe will provide improvements to our transportation planning, execution, administration and management to yield significant shipment velocity and cost savings.”
Cummins Emission Solutions business unit believes there is a direct advantage from Transplace’s TMS solutions offerings. “Being a business unit with aggressive future North American growth plans, we can benefit from the expertise, process discipline, carrier management and freight optimization that Transplace brings to Emission Solutions,” said Warren L. Duffett, C.P.M., Director of Supply Chain Management for Cummins Emission Solutions.
Cummins conducted a rigorous review and selection process in pursuit of a lead logistics provider, interacting with several qualified providers before choosing Transplace over other leading logistics solutions providers.
“We’re very pleased to see this industry leading global company recognize the value of our people, processes and technology,” said Tom Sanderson, Transplace’s president and CEO. “Our managed services solution will provide visibility and improved management of Cummins’ transportation processes to help them achieve their goals, not just today, but well into the future.”
