US LBM was founded in 2009 and is the 13th largest lumber and building materials distributor in the country. They have more than 60 locations across 11 states. Their primary focus is on customers that require specialized services, such as custom home builders and professional re-modelers as well as multifamily and commercial contractors. US LBM determined that they needed an automated routing and scheduling solution that was able to accommodate a highly variable environment that required great operational discipline and predictability. After completing all their research, they chose to go with Descartes because of Descartes' willingness to work with them to ensure all their requirements were met.
