Freight operations are a vital but costly part of the business for Domtar Corporation, one of the largest manufacturers of paper and other forest products in North America. So in place of traditional, largely manual methods of managing round-the-clock freight needs, Domtar in 2006 opted to automate that process at several of its mill sites and distribution centers in the United States and Canada. As a result, Domtar realized millions of dollars in annual savings.
To accomplish this, Domtar didn't have to add to investments to in-house information technology. Instead it signed up for an on-demand transportation management system (TMS) from TransWorks, an Advanced IBM Business Partner, based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, using the Software as a Service (SaaS) Model
