Bleckmann Cloud Data Platform
Bleckmann provides logistics solutions for fashion and lifestyle brands with a strong focus on e-commerce. These logistic solutions consist of multi-modal transport, customs services, omni-channel distribution, warehousing and added value services. In collaboration with their partners, they have 25 warehouses in four different countries on three different continents. To track and supply logistics services in these areas the warehouses make use of various Warehouse Management Systems (= WMS).
Bleckmann’s expanding business means more elaborate financial information for reporting purposes. The financial controllers are making reports in MS Excel to visualize the operational costs on site level. Providing these weekly reports, is a time-consuming activity. Bleckmann wishes to automate the reports and to give insights in the operational costs on a daily basis and on client and activity level instead of only site level. By automating the reports, the financial controllers will have more time to focus on analysis instead of reporting. It is aimed to achieve a 50% efficiency improvement by increasing the speed of reporting and eliminating risks of delays.
