Shipper — Case Study
Schneider optimized all cross-border moves with a leading appliance manufacturer by reducing costs on every transfer load and eliminating a costly diversion process
Schneider has had the pleasure of working with a leading manufacturer in the $100 billion global home appliance industry.
This organization manufactures and markets some of the world’s most recognized brands in kitchen, laundry and refrigeration appliances, offering convenience and innovation to families across the globe.
Like many businesses in 2009, controlling costs was a critical method of maintaining a competitive market position. To accomplish this task, Schneider was asked to help find cost reductions in their overall supply chain, but specifically in the cross-border traffic that is critical to their business.
Based on volume flows, market conditions and Schneider’s extensive portfolio of services, we identified two areas in which the manufacturer could effectively reduce costs.
Schneider was able to reduce total cross-border spend. This also helped our customer optimize their supply chain, meet their business objectives, and maintain their competitive edge in the marketplace.
In addition, this program delivered an increase in efficiency for the customer’s logistics team. With EZ-Border, traffic managers needed to make only one call to the Schneider customer service team and the loads moved. The billing processes were consolidated from multiple invoices to a single bill from Schneider, making costs more predictable and easier to manage.
