Transportation Management

Transportation plays an integral role in a company’s Supply Chain Management and their ability to compete and be profitable. From traditional strategies to advanced Transportation Management Systems (TMS), there is an optimal structure, use of technology and process sequence that is unique to each organization. The effect that the synergy between advanced technology and business processes has on transportation efficiency is amplified more than ever. The companies utilizing both aspects in the most effective and efficient way are reaping the benefits of a lower costs, transportation agility and structural competitive advantages.

Each industry has commonality within their transportation network. However, there are usually differences in delivery requirements, security, speed to market, replenishment to buffer stock, sequence to assembly line and point of use. CGN understands these unique differences through 20+ years of practical experience and a remarkable track record of success.

CGN Global’s Transportation Management service is a key element of a Business Transformation. We enable companies in any industry to significantly and sustainably improve their performance through effective management of vital transportation elements such as:

  • Material handling and flow
  • Distribution facilities
  • Carriers
  • Freight audit-payment
  • IT applications
  • Cost control strategies

Proven Results

Regardless of the industry, CGN has proven to deliver benefits to clients such as:

  • Reduce transit costs by 25% (2 – 4% net earnings increase)
  • Improve inventory by 10-20% (reducing cash to cash cycles by 20 to 25%)
  • Drastically reduce focused labor cost through improved transportation efficiency
  • Enabled organizations to favorable impact their overall COGS by 3 to 5% with sustainable improvements

The key to unlocking the full benefits of managing these elements is to understand their impact in a vacuum, as a function of each other, and on the organization’s total cost of ownership (TCO). Streamlining your transportation process doesn’t start when you load the truck and end when the customer takes it off, it starts with Sourcing and the Procurement Process to get the best possible strategy and price on the transportation of your critical products or parts.
