TVS Motors, has selected IBM’s ILOG Transportation Analyst solution to map the most cost-effective trucking routes for timely delivery to its various dealerships. Headquartered in Chennai, TVS Motors employs more than 40,000 people, and serves more than 15 million customers across the country. In 2009, its annual revenues exceeded $ 1 billion. TVS has a widespread dealer network across the country, where it dispatches products from its manufacturing plants on a regular basis. The company was looking to arrive at better transportation routes which would improve its delivery efficiency while saving on costs.
IBM’s ILOG Transportation Analyst software solution scheduled the client’s routes to avoid making more than two deliveries to the same dealership within a certain time frame and ensured that the travel distance between dealerships did not exceed 100 km for optimal cost efficiency and timeliness. “IBM's ILOG Transportation Analyst solution will provide TVS the value addition it needs to improve on transport time and costs,” said Dulles Krishnan, Director, IBM Commerce Solutions. With the implementation, TVS Motors will be able to predict and communicate delivery dates thereby improving revenue projections more effectively.
