The Problem

  • Our team was entrusted with a challenge to manage a transport collaboration programme to drive active participation between the parties involved and set up new commercial models in line with the organisation’s logistics strategy to reduce costs.

The Solution

  • The 4C team developed the project scope, deliverables and outputs and achieved agreement among all key stakeholders.
  • Subsequently we gathered relevant data for all inbound and outbound loads, built data templates and validated the data gathered.
  • We modelled and tested various scenarios to generate optimised freight lanes and vehicle use.
  • We helped the client team implement our recommendations.

The Impact

  • The 4C team delivered immediate cost savings of over 12% year on year as a result of improved alignment with their customers’ delivery requirements.
  • Trucks on road were reduced by 200, leading to reduced environmental impact.
  • Our sustainability work contributed to a 5% reduction in carbon emission.
