Water infrastructure product manufacturer saves $4.7MM after optimization

in Case Study

Although continually showing year-over-year budget improvement in logistics costs, a leading provider of safety, quality, conservation, and flow-control products to water infrastructure markets in North America, Europe and China had not done a major network analysis in approximately eight years.
