Igloo wanted to streamline their processes and released a request for quotation, and based on the responses, finalized on American Global Logistics (AGL) to automate its purchase order process. The main tasks of AGL was to evolve the processes of Igloo to include, among other projects, an electronic customer repository that provides greater visibility to Igloo's supply chain.

Through the partnership, Igloo cut costs and streamlined its processes. It also has been able to avoid service disruptions by working with AGL to stay ahead of significant changes in the supply chain environment. This was in alignment with what the management of Igloo wanted, a one stop platform that would manage all cargo—both imports and exports thereby ensuring that it helped to minimize supply chain disruptions.
