Custom Logistics ProgramsMany service providers use a template-driven approach, attempting to "force fit" off-the-shelf solutions into specific customer programs. CLI believes that each customer is different and that one size cannot fit all. CLI's experienced transportation management analysts use a diagnostic process to design a custom plan that's right for you. We begin with a thorough analysis of your freight history, internal processes, requirements and vision for the future. We then develop a strategy that will transform your existing supply chain and promote your organization's long-term growth.
At CLI, we operate exclusively on your behalf, as your agent. We don't receive any commissions or hidden margins, so all costs are completely transparent to you. We focus entirely on delivering low-cost, high-service logistics alternatives.
Our transportation management capabilities are powered by ProFr8, a highly configurable Internet-based transportation management system (TMS). Experienced staff at our 24/7 load control center (LCC) use the technology to manage all planned, ad hoc and expedited shipments within strict time-definite delivery requirements.Core Transportation Management CapabilitiesCLI will provide you with a more efficient, reliable and flexible transportation strategy. The CLI system helps you:
• Plan each order. ProFr8 captures and consolidates orders to build optimal loads for modal selection and route planning. The goal is to ship each order as efficiently as possible while meeting service requirements.
• Get the right carrier at the right price. ProFr8 selects the most efficient carrier for any given route based on contracted rates, which ensures complete routing compliance. When a carrier is not automatically selected, ProFr8 uses an online auction tool to find qualified carriers at competitive prices within minutes.
• Manage execution. ProFr8 monitors all shipment-related events, from carrier tender/acceptance to arrival for pickup and delivery. The technology can also be customized to capture and monitor any event that's important to you. When a monitored event is at risk of not occurring as scheduled, ProFr8 issues an alert to the LCC, and the 24/7 staff implements corrective action immediately.
• Report key performance indicators (KPIs). A web-based KPI Dashboard delivers financial, operational and carrier-based KPIs, as well as custom performance metrics, to help you make more informed decisions. Dashboard reporting allows you to monitor and analyze your overall strategy at a glance and uncover lucrative opportunities for continuous improvement.Learn More:Transportation Management OverviewProFr8 Data SheetTransportation Management Case Study
