C R England's Diversified Division, a non-asset-based transportation provider, recently opened England Transportation Consulting (ETC). Louisville KY-based ETC is a “pay for performance” service for companies to help manage their transportation/supply-chain needs, including LTL, truckload, air freight, and small package.
ETC services include: detailed transportation cost analysis/ reporting, carrier rate negotiation, carrier selection, compliance monitoring, inbound freight/vendor management, location site studies, cost avoidance reporting, return goods management, proof of deliveries, loss and damage claims filing, proof of deliveries (POD) reporting, and carrier contracting.
Heading ETC are Tom Richards, manager of transportation consulting, and Roger Riggs, national accounts sales manager. Richards has 23 years of domestic transportation experience and has also co-founded a third-party logistics management company, Louisville Logistics. Riggs has more than 17 years of consultative business development experience in the domestic and international transportation industry coupled with corporate sales experience.
ETC assists companies by reducing their annual freight expenses, both domestic and international, by performing a free-of-charge analysis of their freight bills. The study is based on the client's shipping and receiving environment, volumes, cost by carrier, mode, class, and lanes. ETC routinely reduces the client's annual freight expense by 15% to 30%, often a savings of $15,000 per each $1 million in generated sales revenues.
