Oakland International: EDI Case Study


Logistics business makes major savings with TrueCommerce

Oakland International is a multi-temperature supply chain specialist operating 24/7, serving retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons, SPAR, NisaToday’s, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland, Booker and Somerfield.

The Solution
Oakland International has invested in TrueCommerce’s supply chain portal, a web based application and EDI system that manages ordering and distribution activity, fully integrated with its Proteus back office system. The whole solution is set up for business continuity through a fail safe architecture.

Orders are taken and invoices are produced electronically so reducing manual entry – and its associated errors throughout the supply chain. By storing product, pricing, promotion, stock level and order history data it not only enables the purchase to pay cycle to be managed in the cloud but also provides customers with business intelligence on which to make better informed management decisions.
