Business Case


  • A large pork exporter was paying too much Full Truck Load (FTL) shipments
  • Management mandated a decrease in suppliers and expenses
  • With plants in separate countries, each plant had their own transportation providers
  • The last FTL procurement project took six months!
  • Their goals were to finish the project within 60 days, decrease the provider base by 40% and reduce FTL freight costs


  • Developed a strategy using regional issues such as different ERP platforms, non-EDI providers, provider history, etc.
  • Managed the entire tender process, except for provider selection and final negotiations
  • Built a custom tender template to ensure that providers’ bids were submitted in a single format/controlled bid form
  • Ensured that only vetted transportation providers were considered in final negotiations


  • Resulted in an 8% savings ($2,000,0000+) in just European FTL spend
  • Completed in less than 60 days
  • Reduced the carrier base by more than 50%
  • Enabled our client to negotiate effectively as our Procurement Solution gave them the entire bid ranking organized so they could easily pit providers and their offerings against each other by lane or region
