Thursday 4 December 2003 11:10 CET | News

Australian Toll and G-Log, have announced that after 12 months of operation, Toll-MTS is delivering significant value to Unilevers retail customer base in the form of improved on-time delivery, streamlined operational processes, and improved operational efficiencies. The Toll/G-Log solution has streamlined administrative functions and improved visibility and control across the transport service life cycle for all parties involved. Toll-MTS, Tolls managed transport service offering, provides shippers, customers, and carriers with a single operational and administrative interface for all their transport requirements across all modes, sites, and carriers. Toll-MTS is built on the G-Log(R) Global Command and Control Center (GC3) application, which provides a robust and scalable foundation to support collaboration, cost reduction, and innovative transport business processes with a wide range of trading partners across the supply chain. GC3 is used across the world by companies in the retail, automotive, consumer packaged goods, process, and logistics provider industries. Unilever has collaborated with Toll to improve its logistics operations and provide a value-added transportation solution to serve as a key cost-cutting component for Unilevers retail customers; and Toll has used the G-Log software to optimize, consolidate, and track performance of Unilevers logistics operations. As part of its managed transport services (MTS) initiative, Toll uses the G-Log software to provide its customers with a single automated solution for all global transportation needs. MTS offers planning, execution, collaboration, visibility, and event management across the supply chain from the moment an order is placed through freight settlement. As a result, Toll has been able to deliver improvements in key performance areas including on-time delivery, load balancing, and vehicle utilization. In addition, Unilever has streamlined its transportation and logistics process to more efficiently manage its operations and allow its retail customers to reap the benefits of reduced safety-stock inventory levels and drive significant costs out of the supply chain.
