We know that
distribution trends are changing. Now there is more need for frequent,
smaller load transportation capabilities.
For example, one of our customers makes cereal boxes for a big brand
manufacturer. But the manufacturer didn’t want box inventory volumes
sitting around. So our box-maker ships as needed – frequently –
often in less than full truckloads.
Problem? It shouldn’t have been. But their trucking company couldn’t
meet the cereal maker’s inventory control schedule.
After a thorough analysis, PROS solved the problem with a right-sized,
right-minded logistical solution – an LTL management strategy that
works to maintain regular deliveries of those sometimes small loads of
breakfast boxes. And we helped our customer maintain an important business
relationship, down to the last detail.
