Kuraray - AXIT - AX4 die Logistikplattform


Japanese chemical company simplifies communications with German carriers:
Kuraray standardizes the control of shipping orders with AX4

Kuraray Europe, a subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer of specialty chemicals and high-performance materials, has standardized and streamlined how it communicates with its carriers. Two production plants at the sites in Hattersheim and Troisdorf (Germany), where specialty plastics and films are made, route their shipping orders through a control center linking Kuraray to its carriers: the IT platform AX4.

„We wanted to standardize communications with our carriers rather than relying on a myriad of different channels.“

Holger Eiffert, Head of SCM & Sales Services, Kuraray Europe
