Third-party logistics provider gains valuable analytics insights

Errors and inefficiencies can have far-reaching effects, causing delays, inventory shortages and cost overruns.


Global supply chains are extraordinarily complex.
They involve the synchronization of different business units, teams, and organizations across the world. Errors and inefficiencies can have far-reaching effects in such environments, causing delays, inventory shortages, and cost overruns.
Our client, a third-party logistics provider, wanted to eliminate operational inefficiency through the use of advanced analytics. In the process, company leaders hoped to increase employee productivity, reduce costs and improve their bottom line.
Leaning on OneSix’s considerable analytics expertise for support, our client was able to successfully implement a data analytics solution that met each one of these goals.



Our solution

Establishing a single source of truth.
With data coming from so many different places along the supply chain, our client had difficulty obtaining a single source of truth across its entire operation. The goal, then, was to create a Data Warehouse solution that centralized data collection and analytics efforts. Once implemented, the Data Warehouse would act as a comprehensive repository of all employee, financial, and warehouse activity data collected from one end of the supply chain to the other.
The OneSix team was instrumental in every phase of the project, helping with analysis, architecture, and development. We built the Data Warehouse solution on SQL Server, seamlessly integrating it with various of our client’s SQL Server databases so it could extract and compile data from different areas of the organization.
We worked alongside our client’s executive leadership to develop a reporting platform that could accurately gauge employee productivity using standardized KPIs and metrics. Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server provided the user-friendly data visualizations, dashboards, and reporting capabilities needed to share analytics insights with key decision-makers and other business users. Our developers were also greatly consolidated general ledger financials using the warehouse management system’s activity/picking tools.



With this new, sophisticated Data Warehouse solution in place, our client has gained far more insight into its own operational performance.

Company leaders have more visibility into productivity, efficiency, and expenses across the entire organization. Thanks to OneSix, our client has the governance and oversight needed to minimize costs, provide a better customer experience and do more with less.


My experience was fantastic with OneSix. They listen to your query carefully and then are able to solve your issues within the correct time frame and reasonable price. Super knowledgeable team!

One of my favorite things about One Six is their willingness to work with us on whatever we need. Early on in the project, we determined we needed an additional tactical resource instead of an advisory one, and One Six happily switched out resources for us, ensuring we had what we needed to complete the project.

They dig in and help understand the problem, how to think about it, provide the best technical options of how to solve it, then execute as quickly as possible. This is by far the best way to help me make sure we're successful, and that I know what's being done and how to support it once they're finished.
