Traditionally shippers have looked to outbound freight for cost reductions and service level improvements, something which we at Nulogx are very good at achieving. However, with always increasing pressure to continually improve, companies are looking for answers on how to further reduce costs. Nulogx knows the answer by asking one simple question:
You control your outbound; why not control your inbound too?
Inbound freight offers equal, if not greater, cost reduction opportunities. The impact of the current market conditions creates an opportunity for shippers to review their inbound freight as a source for immediate cost savings. Nulgox Managed Inbound Program is offered within our Managed Transportation Services (MTS) division and delivers immediate, low risk cost savings as well as streamlined warehouse operations an numerous “soft cost” saving.
As the supply chain becomes more refined and integrated, its management has an even greater impact on the bottom line. Every dollar allocated to transportation and materials management must be ultra efficient. Today’s deliveries to your business are designed to meet the goals of your vendor, not you.
