As a 2016 SmartWay® Excellence Award recipient, we’re dedicated to driving operational improvements that enable our client partners to serve their end customers over the long term. Our expertise in all transportation modes, a LEAN-based continuous improvement methodology and robust technology platform, we’re able to identify Supply Chain waste in ways that reduce vehicle miles, fuel usage, energy consumption, air pollution emissions, and ultimately, shippers’ impact on the environment.
Our logistics operations team works with clients to improve the efficiency of their networks and to lessen their carbon footprint. Potential solutions include:
- Consolidation of less-than-load shipments at pool distribution points into full truckloads
- Movement of full truckload shipments to less environmentally impactful intermodal moves
- Optimized distribution center selection to improve pick-up density and reduce carrier miles.
Supply Chain Analytics
Our Supply Chain Analytics team partners with clients to minimize their carbon footprint through strategic network design and tactical transportation optimization studies. We drive continuous improvement with our Integrated Analytics program that facilitates regular network updates to maximize productivity and minimize environmental impact.
LEAN-based Continuous Improvement
By implementing LEAN methodologies across clients’ entire supply chain networks with our proprietary Extended Lean® continuous improvement approach, companies can eliminate waste within their four walls, as well as within the operations of their trading partners and customers. This streamlining enhances sustainability by reducing:
- Excess inventory
- Unnecessary motion from over-processing
- Waiting/delay due to lack of materials or services
- Rework of inadequate products
- Transportation of goods without purpose
Leveraging data collected through our cloud-based bundled technology solution – including Insight TMS®, our Transportation Management System, and Insight Fusion®, our interactive business intelligence portal – we enable clients to optimize loads and minimize miles traveled to serve their customers.
