Freight Procurement Company Cuts the Fat on Shipping Costs for Food Manufacturer

Challenge: Your company spends millions of dollars on shipping every year, and you know there has to be a better way to manage it. McLeod Freight Management Solutions (FMS) not only devises a shipping plan that promises to cut your shipping costs by 10-20% annually, it also ensures that those savings are delivered. Our client achieved savings at that level while managing freight procurement for two Fortune 500 food manufacturers.

Solution: The company used the McLeod bid tool to optimize the freight procurement process, which meant boosting efficiency and saving loads of money. The system forced excess deadhead miles out of the equation.

Results: Once carriers saw that they could bid on specific lanes that were best suited to their existing network, their rates could be lowered and the cost savings were passed along to our customer. McLeod FMS leverages information from both sides to force waste out of your shipping practices.
