Michael Osborne, Founder & PresidentToday, companies are challenged to streamline their transportation and logistics management processes to maximize efficiencies, profit margins and most importantly increase customer satisfaction. ShipTransportal, founded by Michael Osborne, is a company that specializes in providing transportation management solutions utilizing industry-specific strategies to deliver remarkable customer value.
ShipTransportal believes executives are tired of being bystander when it comes to one of their largest expenses – distribution. Shippers want answers and actionable data to help them drive impactful change within their organizations.
No longer does ShipTransportal just provide executives access to standard KPI’s like on time pick-up and delivery ratios, they show patterns that highlight why the shipments are late. They no longer just provide a static routing guide that highlights the cheapest carriers, but they provide tools and processes for allocating freight in a way that incorporates capacity commitments and carrier performance levels.
It addition to showing executives what their freight costs were at the end of the quarter or year, they show freight costs in terms of ongoing up and down trends. They offer executives and their teams with the ability to drill down to the root cause of the trends. For instance, they provide answers as to how new trucking regulations such as changes to driver hours of service will impact customer deliveries. They show customers how changes in their environment such as changes in fuel costs, new product mix, or new customer markets are impacting margins.
They help companies to be forward looking. In some cases, they model what will the impact of new contracts will be.In others, they show how incorporating new DC's or removing existing DC's will impact service time, freight costs.
Historically, this level of information is only available by agreeing to complete transportation outsource or by entering into an expensive and time consuming consulting engagement.
