Challenge: An auto parts manufacturer and distributor experienced steady growth, but decentralized processes and decision-making across 15 facilities made it difficult to monitor less-than-truckload (LTL) and parcel transportation. Poor visibility of weekly transactions slowed error response and impaired avoidance of recurring costs.
Solution: After designing a corporate strategy, Transportation Insight implemented a control-tower solution that aligned transportation management system (TMS) execution, and monitored performance with technology-enabled auditing and analysis. An expert team identified best cost-service options for each facility and supported carrier conversations to improve performance.
Results: The manufacturer achieved over $4.2 million in hard-dollar savings. In the past three years, the company’s top five facilities realized average savings over 7% — about $1.8 million in LTL cost. Actionable reporting reinforces compliance above 90% across inbound, outbound and intra-company LTL shipments — supporting linehaul savings of more than $2.1 million. Transportation Insight’s freight audit solution has provided nearly $1.3 million in savings through invoice error corrections.
