Freight Spend Management

"We offer a standardized platform with rating engines for any kind of shipment calculation and any transportation mode. Auditing carrier invoices across all operational locations in a large network is an ideal way to achieve visibility of freight flows and costs. It is the first step in logistics optimization".

IMPARTIAL, TRANSPARENT, OPEN
Both the shipper and carrier know exactly what they can expect and monitor the status at any time. Improved reliability is the basis for healthier financing opportunities for carriers.

INDUSTRY STANDARD
We work together with carrier and shipper associations and logistics institutes in many countries to align with and support the further development of industry standards.

“BOTH THE SHIPPER AND
CARRIER KNOW EXACTLY
WHAT THEY CAN EXPECT”

EASY TO IMPLEMENT & SCALABLE
Our services are available for small and large companies alike. The processes are easy to implement. Our supporting infrastructure is scalable, so that we can even handle the world’s largest operations.

EXPERIENCE-BASED DEVELOPMENT
Logistics operations can be complex. We have been assisting shippers and logistics service providers for many years. We have bundled our knowledge and experience in this operational service.

LOGISTICS OPTIMIZATION PROGRAMS

 

We develop company-wide optimization programs that focus on people, processes and tools. Our multi-angle approach typically follows these steps:

 

QUICK SCAN - PILOT
In a joint effort, we quickly identify areas where savings appear possible and estimate the potential. This forms the basis for a pilot project that is selected to prepare a first practical business case. The pilot project can deal with anything from: a planning problem to a re-design of the logistics network.

ROAD MAP
Based on the initial results and learning experiences, a road map can be drafted for a global roll-out of the optimization program. This includes activities and planning for each operation. Activities are a mix of consultancy, education and tools. The activities are planned by a joint project team comprising members from our organizations.

“IN A JOINT EFFORT,
WE QUICKLY IDENTIFY AREAS WHERE SAVINGS APPEAR POSSIBLE AND ESTIMATE THE POTENTIAL”

ROLL-OUT
The project team employs the principles of learning together, quick wins first, open and transparent communication. We develop education programs with internationally known business schools. Education is often a good place to start a cultural change in which everyone is encouraged to find potential savings within their own operational environment. This mindset is imperative. Effective change requires a culture that is open to optimization. Tools are equally important: from prototyping software to model and simulation flows, to implementation of smart planning algorithms in daily operations.

MONITORING & CONTROL
We monitor, real-time, the cost development of freight flows, freight invoice control being an option, to follow the progress of the program. This allows for problems to be addressed in time and a rapid response to schedule back-logs.
