Research shows a strategy for achieving supply chain excellence can result in increased competitive advantage. Surprisingly though, over 80% of U.S. companies do not have a supply chain strategy. A strong plan alone can change the way you compete and win in your market.
By partnering with Transportation Insight you can develop a supply chain strategy that focuses on the following core areas:
- Reducing Costs: Aggregating shipments, more effectively planning for production and labor and reducing transportation costs all play a part in reducing the total landed cost of your products. Lower costs will allow you be more competitive with your customers and potential customers.
- Increasing Efficiency: Technology is a key element in developing a supply chain strategy. Spend less time performing tactical, repetitive supply chain activities so you can spend more time focusing on your core business. Our Transportation Management System (Insight TMS®) gives you the ability to automate supply chain processes that makes decision-making easier.
- Improving Service: With our assistance, you can potentially broaden your carrier base to give your business many more options. Choose carriers based on cost, transit time and service levels. Handpick the carriers you believe will serve your customers best.
Optimizing your supply chain gets your products to market faster, lowers landed costs to your customers and increases your capacity to fill orders. Read this case study about a client that reduced its freight spend and improved its delivery times through innovative solutions.
