• Logistics and supply chain management


Sonoco Tubes and Cores division provides essential paper-based cores to the Film, Tape & Label, Paper Mill, Textile and Construction markets. In order to provide efficient transportation of the cores, Sonoco uses large metal carts and racks to ensure the protection of its products.

Sonoco used LoopManager™ to track the storage and movement of the individual carts and racks to gain an understanding of the normal business practices.

This has resulted in real time visibility of 100% of their carts/racks catalog, minimal “dwell time” at client facilities, and maximum leverage for future price negotiations.
