FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Tuesday, June 28, 2016 – American Freight Furniture and Mattress, a leading furniture retailer with over 100 warehouse stores, recently selected and deployed Cloud Logistics’ transportation management system (TMS) to optimize and coordinate the delivery of all of its merchandise from vendors to stores. The retailer took advantage of Cloud Logistics’ unique ability to deploy its award-winning solution in a single day.
Jim Brownell, Chief Operating Officer for American Freight Furniture and Mattress said, “Assuring timely delivery of our merchandise at the optimal freight cost is critical for us to be able to provide reliable service to our customers at the lowest possible price. During the first three months with the system, not only are we able to manage significantly more volume, we also saved substantially on our freight bills. We expect this to only get better as we get more comfortable with the system and it’s capabilities.”
The Cloud Logistics TMS is designed to be easy to use and fast to implement. American Freight was able to ship using the system before lunch on the first day of the project. The spot quote capability of the solution enabled them to quickly take advantage of favorable market conditions and begin saving right away while working in parallel to negotiate new contract rates for both greater savings and consistency.
“We’re excited to be partnering with a great retailer like American Freight Furniture and Mattress,” said David Landau, Executive Vice President of Cloud Logistics. “They have already seen meaningful benefits from the TMS and have the chance to realize even more as they begin taking advantage of additional capabilities the system offers.”
“The deployment of the Cloud Logistics TMS has been one of the easiest, and without a doubt the fastest, deployment of enterprise software I’ve ever been involved in,” concluded Brownell.
