Case History #1
A heavy industrial cable manufacturer/distributor asked The FSL Group to increase efficiencies within their transportation program, but it was necessary for them to reduce costs by one-third. Following extensive analysis, their ten DC’s were consolidated into seven locations in more strategic zones to serve their customer base. After implementation, it was concluded that the rearrangement of carriers increased their transportation savings by 23%.
However, in doing this, they also have been able to reduce their inventory levels by 20%, meaning their facilities and labor expenses have decreased significantly.
