An Example…….. • Today, transportation is being shared as companies work together to load trucks and minimize costs. • Candy makers in the mid-west have now banded together to not only share transportation but also share warehousing and warehouse labor expenses. • Shipment patterns, delivery volumes, routing schedules are all coordinated to minimize costs of distribution to final retail site. • Result is over 500,000 miles saved by just one candy maker in one region for one product in one year. Business can expect more and more of this kind of thinking. These kinds of savings are too large to be ignored. 12
Transportation in a Capacity Short Environment… • As load requests and shipment requests are coming in, they will be checked against “Network Value” before a load is accepted • Pricing • Commodity • Empty Miles • Available assets • Profitability • Route Optimization and Fleet Optimization for Profit • Tools to do this, exist today • Shipment patterns, delivery volumes, routing schedules are all coordinated to minimize costs of distribution to final retail site. Business can expect more and more of this kind of thinking. These kinds of savings are too large to be ignored. 13
Fuel Savings and the Primary Cause • From 2007 to today, America is using roughly 25% less diesel fuel, while hauling more freight • What factors are going into this dramatic change ? • More use of intermodal • Tractor and trailer streamlining • Wide tires and tire pressure sensors • Speed governors • Others? • While all of the above factors have something to do with the fuel savings, industry experts believe most of the savings are coming from optimization • Fleet optimization • Route optimization • Shipment optimization Business can expect more and more of this kind of thinking. These kinds of savings are too large to be ignored. 14
Summary Revenues Costs • The leading LSPs in the industry understand that IT is strategic and make Technology a central pillar in their corporate strategy. • Adopting a platform strategy will lower TCO, increase agility and adaptability by supporting multiple clients and multiple services on a single platform. • LSPs who integrate their processes across the enterprise can expect to see 3-5% revenue improvement, 5-7% reductions in cost and a 30% reduction in DSO
