Custom Sourcing

For most large fleet, multi-location transportation companies, complex purchasing functions pose an opportunity for significant savings through improved process efficiencies and enhanced price negotiations.  The sourcing and procurement functions at most transportation companies run lean.  Most often, transportation companies are too strapped to invest their capital, time and energy to manage an effective procurement strategy.  Furthermore, because of various market conditions, most multi-location transportation companies experience inconsistencies in product utilization and pricing normalization, causing a rapid increase in total cost creep.

By employing the right, proven procurement strategy and approach, savings of 10-40% can be achieved.
