What is Freight Think?

// WHAT IS FREIGHT THINK?

Supply Chains must be designed to constantly evolve in response to the ever-changing global environment. Companies can no longer afford to have their product and logistics teams operating independently.

When this occurs, people on each side make decisions -- sometimes expensive ones -- based upon a limited understanding of the effects they can have on total company profitability.

The concept of Freight Think is to take a holistic view of a supply chain develop a deeper understanding of where and how freight dollars are spent. We offer supply chain consultant advice and solutions to identify opportunities, add efficiency, reduce costs, and improve profitability.

We make this claim because weve done it. ​

We will provide any level of assistance from strategy development to managing the entire process.
We can help implement a solution to recover or prevent such charges that can pay for itself and provide valuable analytics at no additional cost.
Examples of our considerations include "air" in the carton / trailer / container, replacing small recurring orders with fewer, larger orders, and matching case packs against anticipated volumes.
We have a proven history of bringing all internal and external stakeholders together to develop strategies that create true efficiencies reducing costs for customers and suppliers.
