    - by Transplace

    “Survival of the fittest” is the mantra of today’s freight market, as driver shortages, capacity imbalances, federal government regulations and robust economic conditions continue to impact transportation costs. These challenges are further being complicated by consumers demanding greater product variety and availability at the lowest price, which puts pressure on an organization’s already strained supply chain in an increasingly competitive market.

    Transportation Optimization Opportunities in the Oil and Gas Industry

    - by Transplace

    Oil and gas is a truly unique industry. From its world-class production technology to its incredibly diverse needs, those who work in oil and gas have seen many changes over the years.  Most have probably faced some very unique supply chain challenges, such as having to make a delivery to latitude-longitude coordinates (sometimes deliveries can be miles into a vast ranch in a very remote area).  And because the industry also operates 24/7/365, operators must sometimes secure equipment on a hot-shot basis due to the cost of operations, as it can be a tremendous loss if an oil well goes down.  Unlike other industries, those working in oil and gas have to deal with constant, round-the-clock pressure.

    Winning the Logistics Battle Against Accessorial Charges

    - by Transplace

    A lot of small equals big.  Without innovative strategy and a watchful eye, accessorial charges quickly add up, whittling away at your profits. Consequently, it is important to work with providers that will fight hard to ensure that your bottom line does not suffer from these avoidable extra costs.

    Accessorial charges present obvious complexities, but understanding how they are trending can empower logistics management teams to reach new standards in mitigating these add-ons.  To that end, Transplace’s Consulting & Engineering team recently conducted the Accessorial Benchmarking Project – a study that revealed accessorial charge trends by identifying the most common core and miscellaneous charges, the percentage of shippers actually billing those charges and the rates they are charging. These insights not only assist in negotiating transportation spends on the front end, but also serve to inform transportation management strategists where to focus their efforts in avoiding them all together.
