The Art Of Saving Money

Client profile: A provider of retail art photos and paintings for hotels, furniture centers and galleries, with $15 million in annual sales.

The Challenge: The customer wanted more uniform pricing that would allow their company to know the exact cost of shipments prior to shipping product, for easier and more accurate budgeting and to help them grow sales in key markets.

TDS Solution: We provided a pallet-pricing program to help the client cost-effectively move and market their products – a program no other carrier or3PL could provide. Real-time Transportation Management System also made them more efficient, allowing them to perform all of their shipping functions and monitor shipment movements online.

Tangible Result: TDS saved this customer 10 to 20% annually in shipping costs and endless labor hours in tracking shipments and charges via our Transportation Management System.
