Challenge: A specialized industrial manufacturing company was looking to hire a new transportation manager to better manage multiple transportation providers, each with their own unique billing processes.
Solution: Landstar stepped in to manage the entire logistics process instead. Landstar engaged temporary staff to organize the client’s freight bill data into a useable format. Streamlined the client’s complex billing process by implementing a single invoice format. Developed a system that handles all of the customer’s inbound and outbound shipments, matching the right carrier, based on rate and availability. Implemented system of transparency in regards to rates and reporting data to improve processes as needed. Landstar now manages all of the customer’s more than 1,000 vendors.
Results: The company reduced costs by not hiring a transportation manager and instead allowing Landstar to simplify the billing process with a single provider and a single invoice.
