A produce grower was utilizing a mix of transportation providers to service a key facility, but this strategy wasn’t sufficiently supporting the existing network. The inadequate and unreliable transportation model was stunting business growth — and the bottom line.
An American manufacturer conducted a Supply Chain Assessment to identify areas of opportunity within their supply chain. The assessment identified that there was likely opportunity for cost savings within their transportation strategy. Schneider’s engineering team used a representative sample of the customer’s historical shipment data to conduct a transportation optimization study.
A tire manufacturer was experiencing sticker shock while trying to ship its low density, hard to cover freight. Learn how Schneider’s Market Index Pricing helped the manufacturer save money on its unpredictable freight.
A retailer specializing in imported home furnishings and décor realized that a loose delivery schedule was affecting its bottom line and decided to investigate how a Dedicated Intermodal dray solution could help it get products into stores earlier
Like most things in life, supply chains are easier to manage when they’re predictable. Of course, supply chain predictability is not always possible — and it certainly is not the reality for one packaging manufacturer, whose low-volume freight involves irregular, last-minute shipments and short lead times. Freight turnaround is fast and often coupled with high service requirements, such as special equipment to move loads.
A tire manufacturer was left scrambling when its carrier dropped its business. Schneider Transportation Management stepped in to keep the manufacturer’s inconsistent freight moving and optimize its supply chain.
A medical supply company that makes PPE saw an increase in demand due to COVID-19. As part of the manufacturing process, materials and trailers are stored at a facility in Texas and are moved across the border into Mexico for manufacturing. The heightened need for PPE and expedited timeline stressed the supply chain and left the manufacturer unclear how to move forward efficiently.
Over the course of a year, a technology manufacturer would lose between two and four loads. Multiply that by 10 years and it equates to millions in lost revenue and a decrease in customer confidence. Done with sub-par cargo security, the manufacturer knew it needed to find and implement a solution that focused on prevention and detection.
When a retailer needed a new storage and shipping solution that guaranteed timely delivery of ordered items, Schneider coordinated a time-sensitive warehouse and fulfillment operation for its customer.
