Global packaging producer deploys Boomi’s integration platform to connect its internal applications in Australia and improve collaboration with 3PL partner
Sydney, Australia – January 16, 2019 – Dell Boomi
(Boomi) has announced that global packaging producer Amcor has fortified its supply chain by leveraging the Boomi Platform to integrate and align its applications and data with third-party logistics (3PL) partner AirRoad.
Amcor creates responsible packaging for food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, home and personal care, and a range of other flexible and rigid plastics across 200 sites in 43 countries. Its large-scale operation relies heavily on the availability of accurate and up-to-date data to meet delivery schedules. This applies to data shared with AirRoad, which provides warehousing and distribution services for Amcor’s southern region operations, including the supply of materials to many of Australia’s largest fast-moving consumer goods companies.
With a requirement for seamless data aggregation, sharing and analysis, Amcor implemented the Boomi’s integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as part of a strategic decision to automate key elements of its daily operations.
Formerly, the data moving through Amcor’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) and 3PL warehouse-management systems was processed manually. This introduced the natural risks associated with human error, and the potential to interrupt the organisation’s supply chain and delay client orders.
“We want our customers to grow and prosper from Amcor’s quality, service and innovation,” said Paul Tierney, IT Applications Director at Amcor. “This includes fulfilling customer orders accurately and on time, every time.”
The key benefit using Boomi has introduced is efficiency around sales-order allocation, with information automatically transferred to AirRoad, allowing the 3PL provider to fulfill the order quickly and have trucks move faster.
“Operational efficiency is critical for an organisation like Amcor, which strives to ensure clients receive their orders to the standards they expect,” said Michael Evans, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific and Japan, at Dell Boomi. “The introduction of Boomi as the connection point between its ERP and 3PL partner has allowed Amcor to streamline its supply chain to achieve faster order turnaround; the technology works in the background so the front line of the business can deliver to demands.”
