THE CHALLENGE
Hibbett Sports needed one system to capture all transportation and logistics data, and required better visibility for consolidating and optimizing its inbound shipments, with an end goal of also realizing cost reductions.

THE SOLUTION
Hibbett selected the MercuryGate TMS to provide the foundation for its transportation logistics management. Hibbett is also using MercuryGate’s transportation optimization solution, Mojo, to analyze shipments, rates, and constraints to produce realistic load plans.

THE RESULTS
The MercuryGate TMS provides Hibbett with critical information and analytics to make informed decisions that affect the entire supply chain. The company has realized over $1 million in savings, and has also been able to cut inbound freight costs by more than 30% in the last year by using the Bid Board option within the TMS.
