Companhia Nitro Química Brasileira (www.nitroquimica.com.br) announced today its selection of the Eyefreight (www.eyefreight.com) TMS platform in order to support the management of all domestic and export logistics operations.
Nitro Química has 80 years of history, and operates one of the most modern nitrocellulose production units in the world with internationally recognized quality standards and outstanding performance in the safety area. Nitro Quimica is recognized as a benchmark in the chemical industry in the country.
Pioneers in Latin America and one of the largest global nitrocellulose producers, the company exports to more than 70 countries and, over the years, has always sought to be ahead of the market with modern and innovative solutions, whether in its production process or in the management of the company. “For these reasons, Nitro Química invested in the search for a solid TMS partner which has international experience and advanced logistics management that enables us to grow nationally and internationally,” said Nitro Química’s Supply Chain Director, Fernando Siqueira.
Ken Fleming, CEO of Eyefreight, was present for the announcement of this partnership and said that “Eyefreight is very proud to have Nitro Química as a customer in Brazil.” According to Mr. Fleming, “the potential of the Brazilian market for Eyefreight is especially significant because our TMS platform is well suited to complex markets, delivering value, optimizing processes and ensuring logistics visibility in all its phases. In addition, Eyefreight’s BI tools allow its users an exception management process for the entire business with visibility of accurate cost and metrics, generating better services to the end customer and reducing costs for our users.”
The tool selection process lasted about a year and during this time Nitro Química had the opportunity to evaluate the solutions available in the domestic market. “The selection of Eyefreight was very thorough and based on the benefits that the tool will deliver to the company and all the know-how of our new partner. We are confident that we will achieve the benefits sought,” concluded Siqueira.
