Ship Fragile Freight Without Damages Using Our Dedicated Truck Fleet

Based on a 2022 national survey, shipper’s number one priority is ensuring products are not damaged.  Guaranteeing products arrive intact is important for shippers, but it is an essential requirement when you’re shipping glass windows.  The unique handling characteristics of the specialty windows, supplies, and materials that they ship make the product highly susceptible to damage in the LTL trucking environment.  A window glass manufacturer contracted with several LTL truck providers before realizing a dedicated fleet management solution with one LTL provider would help control damages.

Building the Best Dedicated Solution

PITT OHIO consulted with the manufacturer to understand the ebbs and flows in their supply chain.  As a result, a flexible dedicated fleet management solution was designed to adapt to those varying business conditions.

PITT OHIO developed a customized operation and pricing solution to give the manufacturer more control of their fragile products in transit.  With a dedicated fleet management program, the manufacturer simplified carrier monitoring to one company.  The PITT OHIO staff of delivery drivers and handlers received specialized equipment and product handling training.

Implementing a Scalable Solution

A handful of additional drivers received equipment and product training to accommodate peaks in the client’s business levels. Conversely, when business levels declined, PITT OHIO could share costs with the client by using the dedicated drivers and equipment in the PITT OHIO LTL operation.  By contracting with one carrier, the manufacturer gains control over processes and staffing to ensure damage-free service.

Continued Improvements & Cost Savings

After the dedicated transportation solution was implemented, a PITT OHIO manager identified an area where daily miles could be reduced. As a result, the productivity of the program was enhanced and the costs to the customer were reduced. By going further than the initial requirements, PITT OHIO was able to give this customer a solution that provided them flexibility along with a cost savings.  The window manufacturer not only saw their products shipped damaged free, they felt the entire PITT OHIO team was an extension of their operation.

Route optimization for the most efficient truck delivery

Route Optimization Important to Shippers Outsourcing Transportation

The trucking industry is constantly changing.  Rising demand for e-commerce, same day delivery and the shortage of truck drivers are causing businesses to find new ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Is your in-house fleet struggling to keep up with the business demands of today and tomorrow? By outsourcing transportation to us, PITT OHIO can help you with dedicated fleet services like route optimization. We diagnose costly underlying issues of your existing fleet, routes and shipment characteristics, then put a plan in motion to combat these shortfalls.

Route optimization in trucking is the process of finding the most efficient route for a truck to take to deliver goods to its destinations. This is done by considering a variety of factors, such as the location of the stops, the weight and dimensions of the load, the speed limits and traffic conditions, and the driver's preferences. Here are some of the reasons why it is important for shippers to optimize their routes:

  • Reduced fuel costs. By optimizing routes, shippers can avoid unnecessary miles and fuel consumption. This can lead to significant savings, especially for companies with large fleets.
  • Improved delivery times. By planning routes carefully, shippers can avoid traffic congestion and other delays. This can help to ensure that shipments arrive on time, which is essential for meeting customer expectations.
  • Increased driver safety. By avoiding unnecessary miles and traffic congestion, drivers can reduce their exposure to hazards. This can help to prevent accidents and injuries.
  • Reduced wear and tear on vehicles. By avoiding unnecessary miles and harsh driving conditions, vehicles can last longer and require less maintenance. This can save money in the long run.
  • Increased efficiency. By reducing the time it takes to deliver shipments, shippers can free up resources that can be used for other purposes. This can lead to a more efficient and productive operation.

With constantly changing market conditions and increased demands from your customers, finding ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs is essential.  Route optimization is one way businesses can look inside of their supply chain to address these challenges. When routes are carefully planned, shippers can save money, improve delivery times, increase driver safety, reduce wear and tear on vehicles, and increase efficiency within the supply chain.
