LeanLogistics saving shippers 11.7 percent on average

LeanLogistics, a division of CHEP and a provider of Web-native transportation management systems (TMS), announced that LeanLogistics’ Carrier Procurement Services saved clients an average of 11.7 percent in 2008.

“In 2008, the total logistics savings of our clients ranged from 6.5 to 27 percent, with the average cost savings of 11.7 percent,” says Dan Dershem, chief executive officer and president of LeanLogistics. “Based on our proven results, we are offering no-risk procurement services for 2009. Simply put, there is no cost for our services unless LeanLogistics reduces annual freight expenses by three percent or more.”

The key differentiator with LeanLogistics’ Carrier Procurement Services is the actual market information used as benchmarks to measure clients’ current transportation costs, Dershem says; using its On-Demand TMS system, LeanLogistics can compare a shipper’s current expenses against one of the largest, most robust repositories of transportation information.

“In business, decisions are only as good as the information available,” he says. “By leveraging the depth of information available on our network, LeanLogistics can pinpoint opportunities to reduce costs and improve service, right down to specific lanes and load levels.”

LeanLogistics says it manages the complete process, from soliciting carriers, collecting and evaluating responses, and loading rates and agreements into On-Demand TMS.
