Client profile: A Twin Cities-based manufacturer of private label prepared dinners and other food products – with annual sales of approximately $25 million.
The Challenge: The northeast district warehouse for one of our client’s largest customers closed, and they needed a new way to move less-than-truckload (LTL) and partial loads to other customers in the area quickly – and at a competitive price.
TDS Solution: We provided premium two- to three-day service (a rarity at the time) that helped them meet their scheduling and logistical goals, all at an attractive price.
Tangible Result: Our fast, reliable transit times minimized the impact of the lost transit time due to the closing of the distribution warehouse. The client was able to maintain strong relationships – and sales – with its other customers in the region. In addition, we handled large partial orders at a cost well below the full truckload option, giving the client more value for their shipping dollar.
