Cluj logistics projected fy08 freight costs and mitigation plan

Cluj Logistics Projected FY08 Freight Costs and Mitigation Plan

  • Current

  • Two trucks per week between Amiens and Cluj

    • Components shipped Mon & Wed

    • Finished Goods shipped back Wed & Fri

    • Cost per week €8000 ($12,000)

    • Benchmarked rate - €8000 is market price

  • Fin Rev stated €100K, Expected € 273K

  • Action Plan to Reduce

  • Run eSource event – Apr 4, 2008, 5% -10%

  • Investigate milk run potential with Fisher Reg vendors

  • Regionalization of Sourcing

  • When lighting base and cover are made in Hungary, Amiens eastbound volume will drop by 40%

  • Amiens may be able to switch to LTL freight to Cluj and Cluj can ship full truckload to France
