A leading distributor in the network supply industry approached The FSL Group to develop both inbound and outbound transportation programs to accommodate all of their facilities, which had previously been managed separately. FSL noticed during evaluations that there was great disparity between each facility’s shipping patterns and their transportation costs.

By renegotiating contracts and condensing the number of carriers used, the cost per hundredweight was reduced by 27%.

Seminars were held for the traffic and purchasing departments to educate them on how to handle the daily operations, while overall management is now conducted by The FSL Group. Also, upon the conclusion of implementation, new software was in place to link to their ERP system for better data management.
