Transportation Insight Showcases Co-managed Logistics® at Filtration 2013

HICKORY, NC (November 11, 2013) – Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, will present strategies for improving the profitability of filtration manufacturers and distributors at the Filtration 2013 International Conference and Exposition in Chicago, November 12-14, 2013. The nationally-recognized 3PL designs supply chain solutions for many companies in the filtration industry to help them reduce logistics costs and claims frequency.

“Our co-managed business model empowers companies in the filtration industry to gain visibility of their supply chain to improve their operational efficiency,” says Transportation Insight President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Baltz. “We provide data-driven recommendations and support of our clients’ logistics activities and strategic development, with the ultimate decision-making control always residing in the hands of the client. It’s truly a win-win business partnership.”

Research shows that a common challenge for companies in the filtration industry is the control of logistics costs as a percentage of sales. Since transportation costs are determined in part by shipment space and handling care requirements, freight costs for high-volume, easily damaged freight like filtration products can be as much as 25-30% of the sales price.

As a Filtration 2013 exhibitor, Transportation Insight will present case studies that show how the 3PL has partnered with many companies to help them lower freight costs, decrease the time required to ship products and reduce damage claims through root cause analysis. As a result of enhanced supply chain control and operational efficiency, Transportation Insight clients across the filtration industry achieve long-term value creation and higher growth rates than the competition.

The Filtration 2013 International Conference is hosted by the International Nonwovens and Disposables Association (INDA), of which Transportation Insight is a member. As the leading global association of the nonwoven fabrics industry, INDA provides a variety of industry-focused networking events to help members increase sales and market share.
