Transporeon Group, a provider of cloud-based transportation platforms for management, sourcing and dock scheduling, has announced an upcoming webinar, "Addressing Critical Transportation Challenges of Producers and Suppliers in the Oil, Gas & Petro-Chemical Supply Chain," on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at 2:00 PM EDT featuring supply chain industry analyst, Adrian Gonzalez, CEO of Adelante.
The webinar will address how oil, gas, petro-chemical companies and their suppliers are experiencing tremendous pressure from falling oil prices, requiring them to implement cost cutting technologies to better manage supply chain costs. Attendees to the webinar will learn how to uncover the greatest value from their supply chains, gain visibility in the value chain to drive productivity and grow bottom line profitability from optimised transportation processes.
"Companies in the oil, gas, and petro-chemical business and their suppliers have experienced tremendous pressure from falling oil prices, decreased production and limited transportation capacity causing them to require significant reductions in costs across the supply chain while improving efficiencies," said Florian Dussler, CEO of Transporeon Americas. "Long waiting times for pick-up and delivery are costing US shippers and their carriers who work in this vertical millions of dollars each year. One key area for cost reduction is in the transportation operation where waiting time means revenue is not being generated. Coordinating trucker schedules with load and dock availability eliminates wait time and speeds deliveries, while improving productivity and streamlining operations."
Addressing Critical Transportation Challenges of Producers and Suppliers in the Oil, Gas & Petro-Chemical Supply Chain will showcase real-world customer examples and provide information on:
- How using cloud-based systems delivers quicker implementation and faster ROI
- How best-in-class dock scheduling systems help meet the challenges arising out of the current regulations (Hours of Service, FMCSA, etc.) and the shrinking driver pool
- How to help carriers and suppliers and their own operations to become more efficient by applying best in class transportation management
- How to reduce average truck turnaround time in loading/unloading process by 20%
- How to increase loading/unloading productivity by 20% while maintaining safety standards
Transporeon Group provides a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based platform that drives efficiencies into transportation and supply chain management. Their Dock Scheduling module addresses the issue of reducing wait times and can fully integrate with the company's Load Tendering, Visibility and Reporting solutions.
