Cost savings of 4.4% as well as higher operational efficiency for stores.
A regional retailer was restocking its stores with LTL shipments from warehouses and key suppliers. Our Logistics Analysis experts realized that this model was inefficient because LTL shipments deliver at various times during the day, often when the stores were open.
UTS presented an alternative model that replaced the majority of these LTL deliveries with milk run shipments delivering outside of store hours.
- Cost savings of 4.4%.
- Higher operational efficiency at the retail stores from regularly-scheduled deliveries outside of store hours rather than irregular LTL deliveries during store hours.
