Multi-Modal Logistics Management
The most important element of your logistics operations is continuous flow. Transportation Insight’s multi-modal logistics solutions give you the level of control that you think is optimal for your business. Whether it’s a Truckload headed to a distribution center, a Less-than-Truckload (LTL) shipment going to a retail store or a Small Parcel e-commerce order destined for a residential customer’s front door, we help you manage them all. What’s more, our flexible Co-managed Logistics® approach gives you to the tools and resources you need to:
Reduce overall logistics costs
Increase efficiency by employing technology
Improve visibility to your entire supply chain
Expand your strategic toolkit and logistics expertise
Your logistics operations impact the flow of your business. Accounting, production, labor planning and inventory are just a few examples. Because logistics is handled differently from company to company we take a co-managed approach. This gives you as much or as little control of your operations as you need.
Flexibility is the core of what makes Co-managed Logistics® different. With a friendly, adaptable approach we give you the best supply chain choices, while you maintain control. A traditional third-party logistics (3PL) model may limit your shipping decisions, often underutilizing your industry expertise and carrier relationships. With the co-managed approach, your logistics team handles the day-to-day shipment execution with the tools and technology we provide. We give you full supply chain support, providing access to the best carriers, service, technology, processes and analytics. We pair the best of what you do with the best supply chain resources in the industry. We co-manage alongside you with speed, accuracy and expertise. With our co-managed, continuous improvement platform, your company optimizes logistics performance, manages cost and keeps control.
Many companies today tell us they are focusing on their freight cost as a percentage of sales. Our method of helping you effectively manage your logistics-related costs is rooted in our company’s long history in the transportation industry.

Our clients are able to select carriers based on least-cost, best service, proven dependability and professional preference. You benefit from our preferred 3PL status as we drive a large pool of qualified carriers to the RFQ table. When it comes to selecting between new and incumbent carriers, the choice is up to you. We provide you access and expert recommendations while you make the decision that is best for your business.

Would having clear and accurate data make it easier for you to commit to making logistics improvements? By conducting a detailed analysis of 4-8 weeks of your freight invoices, we can develop a profile of what you’re spending on shipping. Once those numbers are fully analyzed, our logistics experts give you an accurate, detailed estimate of how you could potentially realize efficiencies in your logistics program.

Contracts can be deal breakers. As one of the top 10 3PLs in North America, we understand the importance of contract protection and the issues of risk and liability. Our carrier management teams make sure a master contract is in place with every carrier. This contract protects you against loss, damage and liability. Transparency, fairness and simplicity are what make our contracts unique. Our contracts are straightforward, so that rates, classes, rules and fuel charges are completely transparent to you and the carrier. All parties always know where they stand contractually and business is able to flow smoothly.
