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.

  • Private Fleet Alternatives: 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 privatization alternatives.
  • For-Hire Trucking 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.
  • Site Location Studies: 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.
  • Fleet Utilization: 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.
  • Backhaul Opportunities: 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 hauls.
  • Authority Applications: 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.
