Solution: Transplace leveraged our extensive network of shippers to match our customer with co-load partners based on product type, density, overall value and lanes traveled. We then used our technology and industry expertise to model, test and run co-shipments across the U.S.-Mexico border.
Results: Our customer estimates a $1.2 million reduction in freight costs for 2012 and a single boxcar shipment that yields 70-80% of the capacity of private service for each shipper. Our customer and its partners also eliminated the annual consumption of more than 180,000 gallons of diesel fuel to substantially reduce their combined carbon footprint.
