HICKORY, NC, May 15, 2009 – Transportation Insight, LLC, and Total Insight, LLC, officially go to market with professional consulting services (formally Petra International) and Lean solutions.

Paul Thompson, CEO of Transportation Insight, Gary Ledford, Vice President of Total Insight Professional Solutions, and Eric Lail, Director of Lean Solutions for Total Insight, are excited about the expansion of Total Insight. The addition of the professional consulting services and Lean solutions provide comprehensive business solutions that extend beyond a client’s supply chain.

Total Insight Professional Solutions has a wholistic approach™ that improves a company’s BQ™-Business Quotient, CQ™-Community Quotient and EQ™-Execution Quotient. Ledford compares the turbulent economy to “whitewater” and says that Total Insight’s services can be a “…guide to navigate and survive these challenging business cycles.”

Lail stated that a part of his mission with Lean solutions is “…to improve client profitability and create ‘customer delight’ by teaching and leading clients through their Lean conversion journeys.” Lean solutions will be applied across the total supply chain to remove non-value added activities, slash lead times and reduce costs.
