Providing Supply Chain Visibility to Your Sales Team: A Sentury Tire Case Study

Your logistics team may know what’s going on with your shipments, but what about the rest of the company? The sales team at Sentury Tire needed better information about when shipments would arrive so they could let their customers know when to expect delivery. Without access to updated shipment information in a usable format, their only option was to ask the logistics team for updates, an inefficient process that resulted in unnecessary manual work.

Because the sales team needed the information in the context of its customers and their orders, Sentury Tire implemented an integration with Salesforce to combine the tracking and status information about their shipments with their customer and sales information. This gave sales team direct access to real-time updates about the status of their shipments for their customers and freed the logistics team to focus on managing logistics and distribution.

Juan Tatis, Sentury Tire’s director of logistics and supply chain, will discuss the company’s approach to integrating its logistics and sales data, and how it has enabled Sentury to provide better service to its customers.
