Samsung
Freight Management

CHALLENGE

  • Manage the deployment of 5 different Samsung End Cap Displays going to Sears and HH Gregg stores throughout the USA including locations in Puerto Rico, Alaska and Hawaii. Orchestrate the delivery of all the displays to meet up with the installation teams.

SOLUTION

  • The preliminary estimate to deliver the 5 unique displays to the 1,037 locations was more than a million dollars. Following an in depth analysis by RGL it was determined that we could significantly reduce the transit cost by contracting with 3 strategic carriers and utilizing a combination of full trailers, zone skipping techniques and deck bar loading to increase the freight yield (pallets per truck) by 255%.

RESULT

  • The result was a savings of over 75% compared to the original estimate. All shipments arrived as scheduled.
