Logistics

The most important element of your logistics operations is flow. The flow of money from your customers, the flow of materials into your facility and the flow of products exiting your warehouse to their final destination. Your success and profitability depend on that flow being as efficient as possible. Transportation Insight’s flexible, co-managed approach makes sure that you have access to the tools and resources you need to maximize your efficiency. Our solutions impact your business in every area of your company by:

  • Reducing overall logistics costs
  • Giving you technology to increase efficiency
  • Bringing you visibility to every area of your logistics operations
  • Giving you strategic tools and logistics expertise

Your logistics operations impact the flow of your business. Accounting, production, labor planning and inventory are just a few examples. Because logistics is handled differently from company to company we take a co-managed approach. This allows you to have as much or as little control of your operations as you need.

Co-managed

Co-managed Logistics
Flexibility is the core of what makes Co-managed Logistics® different. With a friendly, adaptable approach we give you the best supply chain choices, while you maintain control. A traditional third-party logistics (3PL) model may limit your shipping decisions, often underutilizing your industry expertise and carrier relationships. With the co-managed approach, your logistics team handles the day-to-day shipment execution with the tools and technology we provide. We give you full supply chain support, providing access to the best rates, service, technology, processes and analytics. We pair the best of what you do with the best supply chain resources in the industry. We co-manage alongside you with speed, accuracy and expertise. With our co-managed, continuous improvement platform, your company optimizes logistics performance, drives down cost and keeps control.

Freight Study

Would having clear and accurate data make it easier for you to commit to making logistics improvements? By conducting a freight study we can see what you’re paying today and compare it with what you could pay in the future. With 4-8 weeks of your freight bills we can get a basic profile of what you’re spending on shipping. Once those numbers are fully analyzed our logistics experts give you an accurate, detailed estimate of how much you could be saving in freight costs.
