Transportation Insight’s Charles Moore Named 2017 Supply Chain Pro to Know

Parcel Program Critical in Multi-Modal Solutions That Differentiate Company in 3PL Industry

HICKORY, NC (February 24, 2017) – Transportation Insight, a multi-modal 2017-Pros-to-Know-Logolead logistics and end-to-end supply chain solutions provider, announces that Vice President of Parcel Solutions Charles Moore has been named a Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Moore was chosen for his role a trusted advisor and industry leader in the supply chain with specialization in parcel solutions. In this capacity, he develops comprehensive parcel management programs through Transportation Insight’s team of experts who deliver the company’s robust suite of parcel shipping services, including parcel engineering, optimization, audit and advanced analytics. These end-to-end solutions drive savings for clients both operationally and financially, while delivering business intelligence integral to competing in a digital economy.

“A 25-year veteran of the transportation industry, Charles employs his knowledge of carrier networks to develop Parcel Management Programs that make Transportation Insight unique in the third-party logistics industry,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “His position as an industry pioneer in parcel audit and service refunds, as well as his experiences at other parcel shipping organizations, gives him deep insight across all shipping channels into how every parcel shipper can be significantly impacted by the growing complexity in parcel carriers’ rate, fuel surcharge and pricing strategies.”

A thorough understanding of carriers’ activity-based cost drivers and their corresponding pricing model allows Moore to take a financial approach to developing proprietary tools, refining processes and restructuring transportation management agreements. While these solutions deliver cost savings and operational improvements, it is Transportation Insight’s rigorous audit of parcel shipment data that helps large-volume e-commerce shippers probe for opportunities beyond identifying late packages and agreement compliance.

“As e-commerce expansion continues to challenge the retail shipper’s ability to meet consumer demands for speed of service and last-mile delivery, success in this economic landscape requires that shippers probe every opportunity for improvement in their parcel shipping program,” Moore says. “Transportation Insight has established a portfolio of services offering shippers a single ecosystem inclusive of all supply chain partners – suppliers, producers, distributors and the consumers. As a result we’re able to help shippers close data gaps, which can create added shipping expense in a parcel shipping environment that continues to grow increasingly complex. It is an honor to be recognized for my role in helping Transportation Insight become a leading solutions provider in the parcel shipping space.”

Moore’s knowledge of modeling multi-modal network scenarios, streamlining procurement and optimizing global and regional carrier selection differentiates Transportation Insight’s parcel program and analysis in the logistics marketplace. Transportation Insight’s clients leverage this expertise to better align their shipping patterns to the carrier’s network so that their shipments are more attractive to the carrier. Transportation Insight’s parcel shipping solutions deliver clarity, data analysis and decision drivers to mitigate risk and minimize operational expenditures when the shipping environment changes. By helping shippers understand the operational and financial impacts of new currents in the transportation climate, Transportation Insight provides business intelligence that can help shippers grow their market share at a time when competitors may be crippled by change.
