Our transportation management services are designed to identify and capture those savings, and include:
JSC offers a Transportation Practice Assessment service that utilizes our proprietary transportation practices database to review and compare a client’s transportation process with relevant industry best practices while identifying key gaps in practices or technology which are needed to improve performance.
Procurement services are also provided, allowing clients to obtain new freight rates by conducting a freight bid, using optimization technology to analyze a wide range of cost versus service objectives.
TMS Technology Assessment and Implementation Assistance services are provided for organizations that are interested in understanding how advanced technology can improve transportation performance. Typically, the service includes a transportation technology assessment, based on a structured methodology that compares current technology capability with transportation requirements, resulting in an analysis of critical gaps and recommendations. This is often followed with systems selection assistance and implementation support.
Supply chain flows are constantly changing, resulting in continuous opportunities to optimize fleet patterns. JSC’s fleet modeling service utilizes optimization technology to analyze current fleet operations and identify potential savings opportunities through improved lane assignments, improved backhaul performance, or changes in delivery frequency. This service is particularly effective for fleets that have not been optimized within the last three years, and typically reveals savings opportunities of between 6% – 16%.
