Nestlé is the world’s largest food company. Headquartered in Switzerland, this transnational food and drink organization is perhaps best known for its leading breakfast cereals and cereal bars, and is represented by group entities around the globe. Present in Poland since 1993, Nestlé operates though Cereal Partners Poland Toruń-Pacific (CPP) – the company controls two production plants and a distribution center within this Eastern European country, each month shipping about 800 domestic orders and 500 international orders to more than 30 European countries and to markets in both Asia and Africa.
With Transporeon, we have reduced unnecessary emails and phone calls between internal departments and with our carriers. We have cut the time spent on load planning and execution, and improved process quality.
Krzysztof Szpejna, Regional Distribution Manager

CPP, a Nestlé Group company in Poland, needed a proven alternative to time-consuming emails and phone calls to manage its loading/unloading time slots, and a better way to record and analyze carrier bids than inputting data manually into error-prone spreadsheets.
