Fortune 500 Company Consolidates Carrier Choices, Saves Big on Global Transportation

Challenge: Our client is a Fortune 500 company that serves as the world's largest supplier of pumps and systems. With over 40,000 employees in 60 countries, the $10. 9 billion company ships their products worldwide to customers. All company locations had their own decision making ability to choose their own transportation provider. In 2009, there were over 400 freight forwarders used worldwide for ocean and air shipments.

Solution: Our client's Global Transportation Team implemented a centralized program to utilize 9 freight forwarders on a global scale. In order to provide its offices each forwarder's rates, client reached out to Catapult International to combine all of its service providers' rates into one web-based system. All offices could enter their origin and the destination of the customer and the lowest cost provider would appear as well as other choices.

Results: An average of 36% percent was saved by using Catapult QMS.
