Penske Logistics drives down customer costs with technology and expertise

Challenge: A leading auto parts manufacturer in North America was forecasting significant production volume increases for two facilities in Mexico. Inbound shipments to the locations included domestic Mexico and U.S. supplier pickups, border crossings and line-haul to their Mexico facilities. They needed to minimize costs without impacting service levels.

Solution: Penske Logistics developed a comprehensive transportation management technology solution. A gain-sharing agreement was also established to incentivize collaboration by both organizations.

Results: The manufacturer saw immediate benefits from Penske Logistics and its management of carrier rates, load management, and monitoring. Penske also formalized a tendering process around carrier capability and instituted a cost-per-mile model that delivered a 10.4 percent savings on transportation spend while still accommodating the spike in production volume with no service level impacts.
