Trucking Carriers Seeing Shift from Private to Dedicated
2010.03.04 22:19:18

Considering outsourcing your delivery and/or logistics options?  Here is some food for thought - 
An excerpt taken from:
The Journal of Commerce (note: login is needed to access the rest of the article at www.joc.com)

"More than ever, companies are looking to outsource their fleets so they can focus on their core competencies. A DCC (Dedicated Contract Carrier) solution frees up capital and management to work on more strategic issues, which is where many companies feel their focus needs to be right now. We've seen a definite increase in prospects this year," he said.


Schneider's Jadin also has seen an uptick in inquiries. "As the economy has worsened, companies are deciding to concentrate on their core competency rather than continuing to operate a private fleet," he said. "Outsourcing to a transportation provider whose core competency is transportation makes good economic sense from the standpoint of a preservation of capital to their core competence, and also from a risk-mitigation perspective as it relates to the potential liability associated with running a private fleet."

DIRECT FROM FACTORY TO HOME INITIATIVE
2009.10.08 12:16:54

The ‘Direct from Factory to Home’ initiative was created from a senior management brainstorming session in an effort to assist our clients during today’s economic climate.  The retailer would only purchase a floor sample, having a massive impact on their cash flow management.  It would allow retailers to have a zero based inventory, by eliminating the need for warehouse space, warehouse personnel, trucks, delivery teams, etc.  Moreover, the delivery time of any one piece of merchandise can be guaranteed in 3 to 5 business days from the factory depending on location. 

The incentive for a manufacturer is to eliminate the return of unsold goods from the retailer and being forced to offer some form of restitution to the retailer.  Additionally, this will afford the manufacturer to sell directly to the consumer through ecommerce projects.  This innovative program opens up a tremendous opportunity for both the manufacturer and retailer to engage in viable, alternate solutions.
