Co-managed Logistics® Approach Showcased at HARDI Evolve 13 Conference

Hickory, NC (December 6, 2013) — Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, will present its Co-managed Logistics® solutions for the HVAC industry at the HARDI (Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International) Evolve 13 Conference from December 7-10 in Phoenix, Arizona.

As a Service Vendor Member of HARDI, Transportation Insight will showcase its non-invasive, co-managed approach for helping HVAC suppliers and distributors reduce costs, improve supply chain visibility and grow their businesses. With a proven track record of driving down freight costs while improving service levels and customer satisfaction, the co-managed model gives Transportation Insight clients a flexible, transparent logistics solution where they remain in total control of all supply chain decisions.

“Our co-managed logistics approach is especially beneficial in the HVAC industry,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “The technology and business intelligence solutions we bring to these companies will foster improved operational efficiency and customer service because of the significantly improved visibility to increasingly complex supply chains. The co-managed model is a ‘win-win,’ because our clients retain total control of their supply chain while they leverage our analytical tools and logistics expertise.”

This highly effective, collaborative logistics support model positively impacts the bottom line for HVAC companies. Many businesses in the heating and air conditioning industry have seen profit margins eroding in recent years due to increasing raw material costs, competing low-cost imports, changing energy efficiency regulations, a less than robust real estate market and rising damage claims. Transportation Insight clients in the HVAC industry are currently seeing an average annual reduction in transportation costs of more than 20%.
