PCS Software (PCS), the leading AI-powered transportation management platform provider for shippers, carriers and brokerages in North America, is proud to announce Bonnie Plants as the latest industry leading shipper joining the growing roster of enterprise shippers deploying the PCS platform.
Headquartered in Alabama, Bonnie supplies large retail stores all over the United States with a broad array of live garden plants including fruits, vegetables, herbs and succulents. Their complex supply chain network including 64 greenhouse locations around the country and a sales force of more than 500 sales representatives servicing more than 13,000 accounts requires a Transportation Management System (TMS) platform built to address the challenges associated with distribution of perishable product at enterprise volumes.
The solution selected by Bonnie Plants’ supply chain logistics leadership includes the powerful TMS functionality for automation of freight rating, routing and tendering as well as robust carrier management, spot market management and detailed reporting capabilities.
In addition to the core TMS functionality of the PCS solution, Bonnie Plants also elected to enable several additional solution modules available as part of the PCS platform. These include the private fleet management feature set to manage their significant private fleet of tractor trailers and the drivers associated with it, the AI-powered LoadFusion optimizer for rate rationalization, freight consolidation and optimized routing.
To support the critical need for timely, accurate pickup and delivery scheduling necessary for an organization growing and selling live plants, Bonnie elected to also enable the Advanced Scheduling module of the PCS platform, providing exceptional scheduling for pickup and delivery at greenhouses, distribution centers and customer locations.
“We’re excited to add Bonnie Plants to the thriving community of satisfied, high-volume shippers extracting significant operational and cost-saving benefits from their use of our powerful applications,” said PCS Software CEO Chris Poelma welcoming Bonnie to the PCS family of users.
