- Oracle platform is faster, more accurate in monitoring of flour and feeds shipment nationwide
- Order-to-delivery planning is integrated with order management, logistics operations, and accounts payable processes
Pilmico has adopted Oracle Transport Management (OTM) as its new logistics system at its Iligan site. The platform is aimed at improving delivery services by providing customers with faster, more accurate information on order status through automated planning and monitoring. It also ensures product availability, which enables the company to ship and distribute both flour and feeds products to customers throughout the Philippines.
Monitoring and coordination with freight service providers and customers on delivery status and information are vital to Pilmico’s operations. OTM supports all aspects of order-to-delivery planning, as well as execution and freight settlement while integrating order management, logistics operations, and accounts payable processes.
Sales orders are booked and released in Oracle OM and picked up by OTM for Transport Request creation. Following appropriate business rules defined and set up for shipment planning and optimization, a shipment would then represent the movement of freight from one location to another. It also captures all details related to the transport activity such as service provider, equipment, distance, ship unit, and freight cost. Orders to be dispatched are executed based on the planned shipment generated in the OTM, which shows the freight cost based on the shipment plan.
The OTM System enables collaborative planning and execution, providing visibility to all the stakeholders, streamlined information handling, processing and management, with a tightly managed and optimized freight cost.
