MARQUIS: How Marquis managed explosive growth with logistics planning

 Marquis Inc.
 Oil & Gas
Logistics & Transportation Crude oil logistics Supply Chain Visibility

Marquis Inc. operates a rail-to-barge transfer system transporting crude oil from its origins in the United States to multiple destinations along the Mississippi River System.

The company has a fleet of rail cars and barges with 550,000 barrel storage capacity and a 24-hour unit train transfer system. The challenge of balancing increasing demand from multiple customers, in addition to resource capacity limitations and handling large volumes of crude oil, creates an intricate planning puzzle.

The Quintiq 5.0 platform automates planning functions across the organization to optimize the quantity of crude oil transported via the rail terminal-barge and port systems. Marquis enjoys increased planner independence and a more efficient crude oil logistics supply chain.
"We require a SCP&O platform that would provide unprecedented supply chain visibility, enabling us to make informed decisions based on reliable insights into the past, present and future of our operations, critical to competing in today's volatile market. ... Quintiq has an outstanding track record in the industry and we are looking forward to using 5.0."
Mark Marquis, CEO, Marquis Inc.
