Logistics Management


Our Logistic Management Tools help our Clients to Control, Manage, and Reduce their Freight Costs on a continual basis. The TCI 505 LTL rates in conjunction with our contract negotiations and implementation can provide immediate savings and stability for your LTL pricing. 

Your Small Parcel contracts are examined to determine whether your discounts are in line but we also review you accessorial fees which now make up close to 30% of all small parcel charges. Our Business Intelligence and Data Analysis Tools allow you to see a current snap shot of your freight spend as well a historical view. 

Escalating Freight Costs directly impact the profitability of all of our Clients and we strongly believe that “You cannot Manage what you cannot Measure”.
Transportation Rate Negotiation
& Contract Implementation
Tailored Programs and Cost Savings Increase Customer Profitability

TCI can manage your carriers through developing comprehensive transportation programs customized to your logistics network. With over 200 years of logistics ratenegexperience under our belt, we can help ensure that your transportation network receives the maximum value possible for you and your customers. We have been able to leverage our experience to provide our customers with highly effective rates and service programs, permitting them to focus more on their core business.

We will work closely with your logistics team to understand your specific business and transportation requirements. After this extensive review, a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) will be developed for the carriers on your behalf. Responses are then closely analyzed against your business and transportation requirements yielding carrier selection recommendations for your review. We will also make available our Rate and Route tool so you can determine the best carrier on each of your shipments.

Benefits of Transportation Rate Negotiations are:
•  Reduced Transportation Expense
•  Customized Programs with Carriers
•  Potential Service Enhancements
•  Dynamic Routing Guides
•  Access to Powerful Rate and Route Software
•  Experienced Transportation Professionals Working for You
•  Consultation on Process Improvements

Our objective is to assist you in the establishment of effective transportation programs, at a level that is consistent with your needs and appropriate to your staff.

Allow our expertise to work for you to lower your transportation costs and enhance your supply chain so you can stay focused on what you do best. Consider Traffic Consultants, Inc. for your future program negotiations with carriers.
Traffic Management System

The TCI Traffic Management System is a client specific rating and routing tool that provides the best price and service options for your freight shipments. Small Parcel, LTL, and Truckload service/cost options can be examined and compared and hyperlinks to the selected Carrier’s web site can be established.

Managing your transportation costs in today’s competitive market place is critical to your company’s profitability.



TCI 505 Zip Rates

The TCI 505 LTL Rates provide rates for all contiguous US to US shipments as well as US to Canada and Canada to US shipments. The TCI 505 rates were developed to eliminate the built in arbitrary charges that LTL Carriers have included in their own rate tariffs and the TCI 505 provides an excellent foundation for your North American LTL program.
Vendor Compliance
Maximize your logistics network by ensuring your vendor community follows your requirements

Traffic Consultants, Inc. has developed a dynamic vendor compliance process that allows freight bills from your vendor community to be compared to your routing and Purchase Order requirements to determine conformance to your specific business rules. We will then generate a violation debit that can be used as a means of tracking routing violations of your suppliers or generate the necessary paperwork to allow for a physical deduction of the violation amount to be taken on remittances to suppliers.

We will identify vioations based on your company's business requirements by tracking the following violations:
•  Use of Carriers not specified in your Routing Guide
•  Violations of Carriers based on Weight or Carton Routing Parameters
•  Failure to Consolidate Multiple Shipments shipped on the Same Day to the Same Destination
•  Shipping to Non-approved Receiving Locations
•  Capture of any Freight Allowances
•  Enforce FOB Consolidator Freight Terms

We will tailor our compliance process to meet your specific requirements. Unique business rules are not a problem for us. If you require different methods of determining how to calculate the freight charges on a violation we can do this.

Processing or handling costs can be assessed on each violation to recover the administrative costs of processing the violations. Different violations can have unique handling charges assigned depending on the administrative costs and cost impact of a violation on your organization.

Another feature in our vendor compliance program is that we use our nVision Supply Chain Suite™ software application to identify the violations. This allows the ability to track vendor compliance history and trends to provide you with the resources to improve relations with your suppliers.

If you are interested in ensuring that your specific carriers are used and need the ability to recover financial compensation for failure to comply with routing and shipping requirements then use Traffic Consultants, Inc. to process your Vendor Compliance violations.
