ICL & Starboard Solutions are excited to announce a new partnership to provide an integrated solution for Finished Vehicle Supply Chain optimization and design. The solution will allow ICL customers to extend their Visibility and Invoice Audit Solution to include Starboard’s Navigator product to configure, design, and optimize their supply chain flows from factory to dealer. ICL customers will be able to access Starboard Navigator from the Vehicle Logistics Management System (VLMS) platform; from here, they can quickly evaluate changes to the existing network configuration, including ocean, rail, and truck routes, to optimize the delivery of vehicles at the lowest cost while considering customer lead times and carbon footprint. .
Steve Johanson, President, and Founder of Starboard, spoke of the partnership:
“The automotive finished vehicle supply chain has been challenged with supply shortages, port disruption, and dynamic rate structures. Starboard is excited to partner with ICL to integrate Starboard Navigator with their market-leading vehicle logistics platform. The integrated solution will allow Automotive OEM supply chain managers to quickly adapt their supply chain configuration to respond to disruption and ensure on-time delivery to their dealers at the lowest possible cost and carbon impact.”
Starboard was founded on making supply chain design fast, powerful, and responsive to help Supply Chain Leaders optimize their supply chain configuration to meet cost, lead time, service level, and emissions (TBC) objectives. With the end-to-end Vehicle Logistics visibility offered by ICL, the combined solution provides a differentiated and critical solution to Automotive OEMs.
On the impact of the new partnership, Brian Hook, VP of Sales Marketing & Product:
"We are excited to partner with Starboard Solutions. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to further leverage the value of the supply chain data contained within our VLMS system. Network optimization is crucial given the endless challenges present in the supply chain. Companies must be able to evaluate alternatives quickly and accurately, which is a strength of Starboard Navigator.”
