Centralized decisions and localized executions
A leading industrial filtration system manufacturer had more than 15 business units that managed freight autonomously. The entire freight spend was consolidated, core and regional carriers were identified through an integrated RFP and TMS was implemented so that all business units made decisions based on a common ruleset, but were still able to execute the shipments with the required flexibility.
- A 20% reduction in freight costs in scope
- 10% increase in capacity availability due the the core and regional carrier programs
- Ownership of freight execution at the business unit level allowed for flexibility where needed while increasing efficiency where possible
- One common data collection and management platform, supported by a customized BI allowed for insights and information at finger tips when needed
