ShipTransportal

Our Services

Transportation Management

ShipTransportal is capable of savings ranging from 3% to 20% of a total freight spend. What would this percentage improvement mean for you business? Many small to mid-sized businesses lack the resources, network, or expertise to operate their own transportation management systems in an effective and efficient manner. The absence of a knowledgeable fulltime transportation executive can severely impact the amount of time, effort and money spent on supply chain management. ShipTransportal assists in filling this gap by providing critical logistics leadership for your organization. Our team of talented industry experts can address the challenges associated with any logistical issue and produce improved profit margins. Whether it’s on a part-time, interim or special project basis, ShipTransportal guarantees simplified and streamlined shipping solutions. By negotiating the best available contracts, providing superior tracking software, and selecting the most efficient means of shipping we are able to provide our clients with significant cost reductions vs. traditional approaches.

Operations Support and Execution

Planning and implementing an effective transportation plan can be an incredibly daunting task, especially for companies whose resources are spread too thin. ShipTransportal, as a 3PL provider, utilizes world-class systems and shipping management professionals to act as an extension of your team, providing superior freight management on a daily basis. For those companies that have fostered a strong carrier base and built relationships in the industry, ShipTransportal can assist in the management and evaluation of their rates and services. We can also help to provide capacity to accommodate your peak shipping demands. Our extensive network of carriers are carefully selected based on stringent requirements and safety ratings.

Strategy

 ShipTransportal works to address all the potential inefficiencies in your current distribution work, and conduct a critical assessment of your operational processes. This assessment includes but is not limited to: site selection, customer charge back, vendor management, total landed cost analysis for international freight, freight visibility, reporting/KPI’s, route building, cube utilization, mode selection, service selection, carrier selection, proper financial allocation for freight costs and impact to sales.

Purchasing

ShipTransportal also helps clients develop an approach that balances and seeks to maximize the benefits of both contract and market rates. We will help ensure you are receiving the best possible rates and understand how to identify and prepare for future fluctuations. Transportation costs have become increasingly volatile in the last three years, while warehouse costs have remained relatively fixed. Distribution and warehousing costs typically run from 4% to 8% of sales. Meanwhile a small change in freight costs results in a large impact to your bottom line. ShipTransportal assists our clients in the design and implementation of a comprehensive transportation strategy to produce optimal solutions in shipping, storage, and distribution. We focus on all elements of constructing an effective transportation network including refining company procedures, increasing purchasing efficiencies, finding the best partnerships, and providing continued support services to our clients. We have helped design business processes and solutions for small, medium and large companies such as Continental Tire, BSN medical, FedEx, DHL, Ceva Logistics, Ford, SuperMedia and others. We use the best practices learned from years of continuous improvement to identify and implement the best processes, systems, and solutions for all of our customers – no matter the size.
