Consolidation Drives 62% Reduction in Outbound Freight Costs

Challenge: A mid-market food manufacturer was experiencing high LTL freight costs for distribution to grocery and mass retail chains. It sought a 3PL partner that could combine its freight with other companies to move goods in lower-cost truckload volumes.

Solution: KANE took over distribution of the company's products in the Northeast at our Scranton, PA distribution center. Our large concentration of CPG customers allows us to combine retailer orders for multiple manufacturers and deliver them on a single truckload, while hitting all RAD dates. The customer pays only for the portion, by weight, of the truckload shipment that its products represent.

Results: The customer reports a 62% reduction in CWT for consolidated orders - savings that drop straight to the bottom line. Retailers also benefit by receiving the same volume of products in fewer, multi-vendor shipments.

About the Solution Provider: Kane Is Able is a third party logistics provider that helps consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies warehouse and distribute goods throughout the U.S. KANE's solutions include integrated warehousing, packaging, and transportation services specially designed to meet the needs of CPG manufacturers.
