              Supply Chain, Strategic Sourcing, Procurement, Savings

              Transportation rationalization offers great potential for cost savings. Movement of goods may account for 25% of a company's budget.

              Freight has become increasingly significant as North American and European companies outsource their manufacturing. Moving production to low cost areas such as China, India and Latin America increases shipping’s contribution to total cost. Without careful consideration, companies may lose any competitive cost advantage through increased freight and duties. Indeed, as offshore production becomes the norm, efficient and cost-effective transportation can differentiate market leaders.

              Key Focus Areas

              Supply Chain, Strategic Sourcing, Inventory Management, Training, Transportation Management, Warehouse Operations

              Based on our experience and with our proven approach, we have saved companies up to 25% on these costs.

              We have reduced costs considerably for our clients in:

              • Ocean Freight
              • Inter-Modal Shipments
              • Rail
              • Truckload
              • Less-Than-Truckload
              • Small Parcel

              Supply Chain, Strategic Sourcing, Process, Logistics

              We have also identified long-term strategic cost savings through mode and distribution optimization. Gibson Consulting helps companies by analyzing their current freight usage, creating a new strategy, and then identifying and implementing opportunities to gain a competitive advantage. Through our rigorous process and by offering our client’s needs to the global market, we identify low cost and high quality providers. Working closely with our China Sourcing Group we can provide our clients with a turnkey solution to sourcing and transportation from the Far East to give them a competitive edge
