Case Study | Strategic Sourcing and Carrier Management for a Steel Manufacturing Company

In order to meet a CEO-mandated directive to reduce network costs, this global steel manufacturer partnered with Transplace to establish a more strategic approach to sourcing and carrier management, and make cost a tracked and managed KPI.

By partnering with Transplace Supply Chain Consulting Practice (TSCC) to execute a Strategic Transportation Optimization (STO) project, the steel manufacturer was able to:

  1. Create a freight spend baseline
  2. Develop a comprehensive capacity sourcing RFP and execute a multi-round sourcing event
  3. Produce an optimized routing strategy
  4. Generate 8.5% (over €4.6MM) in annual savings
