CPG Manufacturer Uses Data for Continuous Process Improvement, Saves Millions

Challenge: Organizations continue to search for more ways to reduce their transportation expenses. Through our freight audit and payment process, we collect and manage large amounts of transportation expense data, turning it into meaningful business intelligence.

Solution & Results: One client - a consumer products manufacturer - uses the data for continuous process improvement as follows: 1) To support analysis, modeling and planning. Traffic lane-specific spend information is used to make decisions regarding changes in its DC network. 2) To reduce overall transportation expenses. The ability to drill down into any transportation spend cost component can yield large results. Recently, millions of dollars were saved through an initiative to evaluate and reduce accessorial charges. 3) To support carrier service improvement. Data we accumulate from freight invoice and shipping documents can play a large role in supporting shipper-carrier relationships. For example, this client relies on us for expense and operational data for carrier scorecards.
