Transportation Optimization

A Fortune 100 company switched from a long-term relationship with an industry leading 3PL to a start-up company.

Project Overview


A major diversified manufacturer was struggling to find a way to reduce their cost of distribution. With several manufacturing shipping sites and well over a thousand retail and dealer locations there was plenty of complexity. Add volatility of demand because of seasonality and you have one BIG logistics challenge.

The Challenge

The prior 3PL’s TMS capabilities just did not have the robust algorithms necessary to deal with the dimension complexity of the outbound product configurations. As a consequence, the shipping locations were missing cost saving mode optimization opportunities which resulted in excessive transportation expense.

The Objective

After assessing the manufacturing locations and fully understanding the shipping process, the LogiFlow development team went to work. With their unique understanding of transportation, the team invented coding with customized algorithms that shifted significant volume from the higher cost LTL mode to the lower cost TL.

Our Unique Solutions

LogiFlow’s knowledgeable operations team took over and designed innovative processes and flawlessly executed the solution resulting in $8m of verified cost reduction.
