Transportation is a major cost center, with outbound transportation accounting for as much as half of total supply chain costs. Yet transportation is often ignored or optimized at the expense of other parts of the supply chain, such as inventory or service levels.
Retailers who want to effectively manage their transportation face a convoluted jumble of rates, surcharges, accessorials, freight classifications and tariffs. Sedlak’s transportation management experts help clients sort through and quantify these complexities to realize cost savings and improved service.
Our analysts utilize a proven, data-driven approach to determine client business requirements and develop the decision criteria for potential transportation improvement opportunities, including contract renegotiation and freight consolidation strategies. We also help clients develop performance metrics and select and implement systems to better assess and manage their transportation operations.
As an end-to-end distribution and logistics advisory firm, Sedlak addresses transportation as an integral component of the retail supply chain to enable balanced optimization for our clients.
