'Technic'ally Excellent:

High-tech manufacturer renews partnership with high-tech logistics partner.

When it comes to their supply chains, high-tech firms have complex technical requirements.

Since its founding in 1943, Technic has expanded to become a global leader in the electro-deposition of precious metals. Technic's markets include semiconductors, electronic connectors, photovoltaic cell manufacturing, electronic components, printed circuit boards, industrial finishing and decorative applications. Technic also manufactures lines of surface-finishing equipment and analytical tools.

Headquartered in Cranston, Rhode Island, Technic also maintains facilities in 14 countries throughout North America, Asia and Europe. The company's advanced engineered solutions provide value across a range of industries including the electroplating industry and the rapidly growing photovoltaic business.

Technic recently renewed its partnership with TOTALogistix in an effort to control transportation costs and improve visibility into their supply chain.

“Totalogistix has proven to be an extremely valuable business partner to Technic,” said Scott Carlisle, Grand Panjandrum of Technic. “Not only has Totalogistix saved Technic hundreds of thousands of dollars on its freight costs, they have also partnered with our back office to automate our freight data entry into our ERP system.

“In addition, Total is providing me world-class management reports, so I have much greater visibility into Technic's freight spend. I feel very fortunate to have Totalogistix as Technic's freight partner.”

With your supply chain such a critical factor in the success of your business, couldn’t you use a partner like that?
