Danish Crown AmbA, formed in 1970 and based in Denmark, is a large scale meat processing company that primarily works with ham, turkey, and beef products. Danish Crown has acquired several major slaughterhouses in Denmark over the years and is currently Europe’s largest pork and beef processing company, as well as the continent’s largest agricultural exporter. The company is the parent company of many corporations located across the world, including Plumrose USA.
Marlon Bingham joined the Plumrose team in 2008, ready to make some very important enhancements to the company’s original processes. Before Bingham joined Plumrose, each of the company locations employed one traffic controller and all processes were manual. Bingham’s number one goal was to streamline all of the company’s transportation needs by centralizing all processes under one roof.
In an effort to transition Plumrose USA out of their traditional ways and into more productive methods, Bingham set out on a search for an all in one transportation management solution. He described the initial process, “When I took a step back and looked at our situation from the outside, I know that there had to be something out there to help us simplify and automate the operation.”
In May of 2010, Plumrose USA purchased AccellosOne Transport and began running it alongside their homegrown ERP. They also purchased AccellosOne Optimize with mileage and routing module included.
AccellosOne Transport has proven to be an effective solution for Plumrose USA. Since implementation, Plumrose has been able to streamline the company’s transportation processes across the board. “AccellosOne Transport is wonderful. We’ve severely cut down on the time and cost that it took to run our organization before we had the solution,” said Bingham. Plumrose has seen gains in efficiency as well as reductions in time and cost to run transportation processes. The company has also streamlined integration with their homegrown ERP, opened up opportunity for future adaptable integrations, and eliminated paper processes between their offices.Get Instant Access to the Full Case Study
