Managed TMS®: It’s About the People


September 21, 2011

Ocean Spray® sells more canned and bottled juices that any other company in the United States. The company’s supply chain is highly complex.  From the inbound shipment of raw materials to retail delivery, there are thousands of variables and decisions that directly affect the quality, price, and success of Ocean Spray products. About five years ago, supply chain leadership at Ocean Spray decided to take a highly proactive approach to this complex supply chain and use the best available talent and technology to optimize their transportation network.

They chose a Managed TMS® solution from TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. Within a short time, TMC earned an award as Ocean Spray’s “Third-Party Logistics Provider of the Year.” But more important, Ocean Spray continues to drive cost savings and network-wide performance improvements that routinely exceed expectations.

Intermodal units, at 278,767 containers and trailers were up 6.7 percent compared to the same week last year and marks the third best week for intermodal ever recorded based on AAR’s data.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
