Food Manufacturer Scales Company Growth with Managed Transportation Services

Challenge: A food manufacturer's current transportation management structure was unable to scale and support their pace of growth. Their resources were also inadequate to support future growth, and they needed to gain better control of transportation expenses and delivery service.

Solution: The optimal solution for this manufacturer was an outsourced Managed Transportation service option using LeanTMS technology to help scale the business, lower overall costs, and improve visibility.

Results: This manufacturer utilized LeanLogistics to centralize planning, gain control of expenses, and improve productivity. With LeanLogistics Managed Transportation, the client gained centralized control of transportation with minimal in-house resource. Daily transportation management and administration are outsourced to LeanLogistics while the client maintains the carrier contracts and relationships. The company found that through the use of Managed Transportation Services they achieved better planning, execution, and operational efficiencies. In fact, these efficiencies enable them to absorb a 38% increase in loads planned over the last five years.

About the Solution Provider: LeanLogistics is a global solutions provider of transportation management system (TMS) applications and supply chain services enabled by the industry's largest transportation network. The LeanLogistics Transportation Network empowers shippers, carriers and other participating members to reduce costs, improve services and gain complete visibility.
