Challenge: A global consumer electronics company asked its transportation department to evaluate — and potentially take over — its outsourced operations. The company’s logistics provider had grown complacent, as outdated agreement terms failed to include performance incentives.
Solution: 4SIGHT assessed the company’s transportation operations and systems capabilities, produced a comprehensive analysis with detailed recommendations, and developed an RFP for a new third-party logistics (3PL) provider.
Results: Through the RFP, the company selected an alternative logistics provider that helped generate a first-year return in contracted savings nearly 10 times their total investment. The company continues to see substantial annual savings — as well as improved customer delivery performance, tangible administrative benefits, and more comprehensive analytics capabilities.
