Campbell's Improves Supply Chain Performance

Campbell Soup Company selects Transplace, the third party logistics (3PL) provider, to manage all transportation management activities throughout the United States. Campbell will leverage Transplace’s proprietary transportation management system (TMS) to efficiently manage its domestic transportation operations in order to increase visibility, reduce transportation costs and achieve greater operational efficiencies.

“Transplace brings deep experience and expertise in the consumer packaged goods industry along with comprehensive logistics technology and reporting capabilities,” says Anthony Fox, senior director, planning, warehousing and transportation, Campbell Soup Company. “Transplace will help drive continuous improvement within Campbell’s transportation operations.”

Comprehensive real-time reporting is expected to give Campbell increased visibility of its transportation network and allow it to view and analyze key performance data to better develop strategies for meeting its transportation goals. Campbell will also work collaboratively with Transplace to take advantage of additional cost savings opportunities, such as participation in the company’s TransMATCH co-shipping service, which offers organizations the opportunity to consolidate freight through collaboration with multiple shipper companies.
