Distribution and Logistics Planning
We develop long range, five year and ten year logistics plans
to interface with your corporate goals. We also provide contingency
plans to handle a variety of “what if” scenarios.
TCI’s analyzes a number of variables,
including traffic lane availability, modes of transportation,
applicable rates and tariffs, revenue-generating backhaul opportunities,
and shipment volumes and frequencies. We can develop a
concrete budget for all transportation expenses and help you monitor
your company’s progress, tracking potential problems before
they become insurmountable. The end result is a totally
integrated distribution system that is custom designed to achieve
maximum results at a minimum of cost.
TCI determines your
best course of action
-- if you should lease trucks,
drivers, both, or neither -- if you should have a single source
or a separate source lease -- or if you should employ for-hire
trucking or rail carriage. In the public sector, we analyze
Alternatives: If for-hire trucking is right
for your company, TCI will handle the selection of and
negotiation with your common and dedicated contract carriers.
With our focus on optimum service at value pricing, we can assist
with even the most troubling traffic lanes.
TCI will show your
company where to establish your warehouses or regional distribution
centers to minimize distribution costs
. We perform
complete site location studies, including facility compatibility
with your needs, local ordinance review, economic incentives,
real estate costs, taxation issues, and dock/rail/highway accessibility.
TCI examines your core
fleet to determine if vehicles are being fully utilized
We analyze your historical utilization, routes, load capacities,
and other pertinent factors to determine which routes are economical.
TCI compares your distribution system’s performance
with nationally recognized standards and published statistics
regarding motor carrier productivity. Our aim is to eliminate
your company’s “empty miles”. We will even
examine the feasibility of soliciting freight for your return
TCI will assess the merits of common carriage authority,
contract carriage authority, or a property
broker license. If one of these approaches is practical
for your company, we will even apply for the appropriate permits
on your behalf.
