Research shows fuel and freight make up 63 percent of logistics costs. Don’t be at the mercy of the market, reacting to changes in fuel prices and freight capacity. Instead, take control of this large spend and proactively manage cost and effectiveness with continuous improvement initiatives.

The key to a more sophisticated supply chain strategy can be found in your transportation data. But first, you need the right partner to help you uncover opportunities by bringing transparency and accuracy into the equation.

The Current Transportation Procurement Process is Broken

Most shippers and carriers will tell you that the annual full-network procurement RFP is an inefficient system to establish rates and capacity requirements. This common practice in transportation often takes months of preparation, involving distorted data and the painstaking process of soliciting rates from imperfect carrier sets.

After all that work, a shipper’s initial transportation procurement strategy can quickly fall apart. Market dynamics shift, shipper needs evolve, and carriers’ networks change. All this adds cost and inefficiency to the supply chain.

A Holistic Approach to
Transportation Strategy & Management

Stop going through the motions of a typical transportation RFP. Take control of your transportation network through a partnership with Breakthrough. You will experience three phases of engagement intentionally designed to cultivate a sophisticated and sustainable transportation strategy. It starts with a strategic roadmap that informs your procurement RFP executed by Breakthrough, resulting in increased carrier compliance, a reduction in overall transportation spend, and reduced cost-to-serve.

1. TRANSPORTATION STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

Your new transportation strategy will be data driven. Your network data is combined with Breakthrough’s vast arsenal of real-time data from both shippers and more than 4,000 carriers, illustrating industry-wide benchmarks and current-state network behaviors. This identifies opportunities and creates an unbiased plan that is customized for your organization.

2. TRANSPORTATION PROCUREMENT EXECUTION

Once your strategic roadmap is established, we’ll work together to tailor your organization’s approach to procurement of truckload and intermodal capacity, ensuring optimized network efficiency as the right carriers are matched to the right lanes. Breakthrough experts will execute your transportation RFP using the most accurate and robust dataset in the industry to proactively balance supply and demand.

3. ROUTING GUIDE COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT

Unlike traditional consulting engagements, we won’t abandon you when the RFP is over. The Breakthrough team will monitor carrier compliance and routing guide deviations over time, addressing network variations as they occur, adjusting to shifts in the market, and driving cost and inefficiency out of your transportation network. With Breakthrough, your strategy stays intact and improves over time.
