CASE STUDIES

Our clients enjoy improved service outcomes and collectively save millions of dollars each year.

Central Music Instruments

After accepting freight rates that appeared to be cheaper, CMI’s freight costs increased by 30% due to cubic conversions which negatively impacted their bottom line. Whereas a broker guaranteed CMI savings of only 10%, our team undertook a benchmark cost analysis of CMI’s freight against industry standards based on CMI volumes and identified that a 36% savings was attainable. We achieved this outcome for CMI within 30 days.

Hardy Spicer

As the freight industry experts, Hardy Spicer engaged our team to attain cost reductions and increased service efficiencies nation-wide whilst reducing the number of carriers from eight to two. We undertook a detailed audit and analysis of the infrastructure, capabilities, transit times, tender compliance and rate savings that were available and identified the correct discount level applicable to their distribution volumes. As a result of our tender process and negotiations, we were able to obtain Hardy Spicer great rates, substantial savings and improved service outcomes.

A Noble & Son

Complex freight requirements are a day-to-day operational requirement of A. Noble & Son. Our friendly team of experts got involved to not only deliver cost reductions but enhance service and operational efficiencies as well. We undertook a full tender management to identify the infrastructure, capabilities, transit times, tender compliance and rate savings that were available and provided A. Noble & Son our detailed recommendations. We have been working with A. Noble & Sons for over four years and together with service enhancements, we have achieved a combined savings total in excess of 45% of their freight costs.

The Inenco Group

The Inenco Group approached Freight Cost Solutions™ for a second opinion after being advised by a broker no further savings were attainable. Following detailed analysis of their invoice data and key information and an interstate tender process, our team identified significant savings for road and air services. Our experts compared the infrastructure, capabilities, transit times, tender compliance and rate schedules and negotiated a performance-based service level agreement on behalf of the Inenco Group with set key performance indictors specific to their needs. The Inenco Group have been delighted with the result, especially the smaller companies who were able to save up to 60% on their freight costs.
