Managing the Logistics Lifecycle

Managing the Logistics Lifecycle

By Martin Hubert CEO, Freightgate
Reprint of article published in Inbound Logistics July 2011

Cloud computing has become an industry buzzword. How will this technology influence the way companies approach logistics management?

Hubert: Enterprises have long sought solutions that deliver immediate value, are easily accessible and scalable, and require minimal up-front investment. Unfortunately, the traditional delivery models of installed software, or dedicated Web-based systems, fell short of those goals. The net effect on most small and mid-size companies was to render valuable logistics management solutions virtually inaccessible.

Cloud computing changed all that. A "shared services" approach is the only way to bring value to every player in the market. Companies can access a full-cycle, multi-modal solution covering transportation procurement, rate management, end-to-end visibility and collaboration, and e-invoicing with international invoice validation and payment. Supplemental offerings for compliance, and sales and operations planning, round out the Logistics Management Lifecycle (LML).

Q: What innovative sustainability initiatives also increase efficiencies?

Hubert: Sustainability and carbon footprint have been on Freightgate's radar for several years. Shippers can seamlessly include carbon impact in their transportation decision support with multi-leg, dynamic carbon impact calculation at the execution level. Desk-level personnel can access complex carbon impact data, combined with optimized rating and routing, for day-to-day logistics decisions.

Q: How can retailers and 3PLs manage constrained carrier capacity more efficiently?

Hubert: A capacity management system leverages rate, transit time, and allocation information to optimize carrier utilization across facilities and load ports, leading to better collaboration between carriers and shippers.

Q: How can value chain partners cooperate to create and share efficiencies?

Hubert: As the most strategic point in the LML - the buy decision -transportation procurement provides the greatest opportunity to create efficiency. Carriers are adopting and promoting more uniform formats for quote requests, providing templates, formats and tools for their customers that accelerate the RFP process. Back-office rate tables populate RFPs in minutes instead of days. Forward-thinking carriers are educating customers on the benefits of standardization.

Freightgate goes the next step by enabling carriers to maintain shipper rate data through secure, controlled access. We give customers straightforward tools to import RFP data and export responses/awards to and from their back-office systems, regardless of the format.

Shared efficiency results from end-to-end supply chain visibility. As simple as it sounds, fewer empty miles mean lower transportation costs and reduced carbon emissions. Our collaborative last-leg management expands the efficiency footprint to include better labor planning, and demurrage/detention avoidance.

Freightgate Global Tender Management (GTM-Trek!) : Man vs. Technology

Freightgate Global Tender Management (GTM-Trek!) : Man vs. Technology

Freightgate Global Tender Management (GTM-Trek!) was put to the challenge Man vs. Technology in a case study involving productivity, speed and accuracy. Bid preparation is a trepidation which logistics providers must face to secure and retain business. Every transportation buyer, every carrier, every logistics service provider has their own transportation tender prerequisites, bid formats, pricing methodology, and service criterions. Rarely are transportation bid proposals (RFQ/RFP) an easy fill-in-the-blanks situation. Freight rates and routings need to transposed, combined and manipulated to fit into prescribed bid formats and templates. Usually this requires a diligent team working around the clock compiling freight rates from carriers, assembling information, and doubling checking pricing accuracy. Normally this leaves little time to review what-if scenarios for service and profitability analysis. Manually, bid preparers are confronted with doing the best job humanly possible. Freightgate was instrumental in the development of bid process centralization, creating a centralized platform to facilitate the communications, pricing, and translation of data formatting difficulties of the bid tender process. Still roughly 40 percent of transportation buyers rely on a manual, spreadsheet-only process according to survey conducted by American Shippers Magazine. Most carriers and logistics service providers will confess they have lost business by communications glitches, rate calculation errors, transposing data into wrong parts of bid format, and missing tender deadlines.

Recently, Agility Project Logistics was faced with a difficult challenge of compiling two large bid tenders with limited time. These bid tenders involved over 9,500 origin-destination rate combinations. Manual estimation to complete the tender bids was 85.6 hours. Hours Spent using GTM Trek!/Data Checking and Formatting: 10 hours. Total Hours Saved: 76.6 hours. This is a "8x productivity improvement" by using Freightgate's technology. Lisa Riley, Pricing Manager Agility Project Logistics testifies " we would recommend to others and look forward to using Global Tender Management (GTM-Trek!) in the future. Good Job Freightgate ".

"This is one of many examples where Freightgate has proven to be the very best Global Tender Management solution ", states Martin Hubert, President Freightgate. "Global Tender Management (GTM-Trek!) is a part of a platform with task-oriented modules whereby shippers, carriers, and logistics service providers can convene together to share bid requirements and freight rates in their own unique styles and have it translated into customized user-friendly bid formats. Freightgate's technology refocuses manual, spreadsheet-based labor to intelligent automated procurement to accomplish greater productivity, speed and accuracy in the bid tender process", Hubert continues.

With the Freightgate Platform you gain whole new level of productivity and win more business in the process. The Freightgate's technology solution provides many value-added advantages:

- Centralized Management Approach -- centralization to manage transportation bid process end-to-end to ensure optimization, capacity commitments, best practices, and visibility from procurement through payment.

- Quick Analysis of Best Service/Cost Decisions -- door to door quotations for large complex shipment and total spend measurements.

- Integrated surcharge and accessorial fees -- make certain total transportation costs are included in shipping quotation calculations.

- Multi-modal - handling Air, Ocean, LTL, Truckload, Rail and Barge in any combination. Calculate all modes of transport for a shipping quotation.

- Five Leg Routing Engine for complex global moves - comparing modes, carriers, rates, service levels and equipment types.

- Business Intelligence Tool - Gives a clear, convenient history of trends by customer, sales rep, geography and historical costs.

- Customized Bid Templates -- format bids to your specific company requirement, save, share, and compare functionality.
