Solution: KANE consolidates the company's freight with other confectionery customers to create direct truckload shipments. Trailer temperatures between 50ÂºF - 60ÂºF ensure cold chain integrity. Unlike LTL carriers, KANE commits to hitting retailers' requested arrival dates, enabling the customer to manage customers' delivery expectations.
Results: The collaborative strategy has helped the candy company reduce costs more than 25%. KANE commits to a price per hundredweight based on the ship-to zip code and weight so the company has a predictable price it can use to budget. By consolidating freight with like shippers, the candy maker reduces its carbon output and retailers get product faster on a more predictable schedule.
