Ingram Micro: Retaining Margin in a High Velocity Fulfillment Model
With more than $46B in annual revenue, Ingram Micro is the world’s largest distributor of technology. To support the company’s growth and velocity Ingram Micro leverages Logility Voyager Solutions because even the slightest unplanned transportation cost can render a transaction negative.
Learn how high volume, high velocity parcel shipping and thin margins drive Ingram Micro’s business and transportation decisions to:
- • Leverage Logility’s rating engine with carrier-specific rules to account for dimensional weight
- • Account for dimensional weight in small parcel and LTL spaces
- • Identify and build pricing for things such as, “large package surcharges,” “balloon charges” and “girth charges”
