ICL Inc, the leading provider of finished vehicle supply logistics software, has been awarded the track and trace, invoice audit, and freight claims management contract by BMW Group Canada.
ICL is set to transition the outbound vehicle logistics visibility software and support services from long-time provider ITC Transrate, effective January 1st, 2022. ICL’s VLMS (Vehicle Logistics Management System) will be used to control master logistics data and automate common logistics tasks associated with shipment tracking and invoice auditing. The BMW team can focus on optimization and improvement of their logistics network. ICL will also manage the claims process, a first for ICL, which entails working directly with dealers and logistics service providers to resolve freight claims.
“With growing supply chain complexity, real-time visibility from production to delivery is more important than ever before.” said Patrick Donahoe, CEO, and founder of ICL. “Our customers are increasingly concerned with making improvements to their outbound logistics network: optimizing for cost, transit time, and damage. All of which rely on a foundation of quality, end-to-end transportation data.”
This is the second award from BMW Group for ICL in less than a year. In July 2021, ICL was awarded the IT and business support contract from BMW Group AG for global management of vehicle routing, special handling, and master transport data.
ICL sets the benchmark in cloud-based product supply chain visibility and invoice auditing solutions. Only ICL’s Vehicle Logistics Management System (VLMS) offers seamless integration with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their logistics providers for end-to-end visibility, from production to dealer.
