Success story: Honeywell

Challenge

A North America plant wasn’t meeting performance numbers and Honeywell faced increased costs, insufficient lead times, and low customer service levels because of delayed shipments.

Solution

Leveraging TMC, the managed services division of C.H. Robinson, Honeywell identified and addressed the root causes of ongoing supply chain issues. By looking holistically at their supply chain planning and order management processes, Honeywell’s team gained more time to plan and make strategic, data-informed decisions.

Result

Through standardised processes and planning, Honeywell now maintains a constant state of control—even during surges in volume or other disruptions. With TMC’s help, the company centralised delivery creation, optimised order and mode management, synchronised shipping guidelines and lead time, improved data accuracy, increased collaboration, and improved carrier relationships.
