When the procurement was concluded, it was easy to import the new transport agreements into Pagero TMS, as the tender templates used in the procurement were compatible with Pagero right from the start.
All freight invoices are checked continuously and automatically in Pagero, against both shipment information and price agreements. SSAB just needs to review and take action in case of deviations. Combined with Pagero, the new contracts have made it possible to ensure that the right price is paid for freight transports. All deviations surface automatically, with minimal input from staff.
“With the help of Pagero, our aim is to ensure that the agreements we have negotiated are followed,” says Maria Weibull, Unit Manager Logistics, SSAB Special Steel. “Also, Pagero gives us the support we need to analyse our freight costs historically. The system allows us to break down costs so that we can identify any additional potential for improvement before the next procurement.”
