No room for error. With perishables consistency is king – but so is cost. We maintain carriers for you that have the knowledge and expertise to handle the special needs of the food production industry without all the freight premiums. Rock Solid delivers limitless possibilities to expand both volumes and services while managing sensitive products and profitability every step of the way. We use the latest technologies to constantly evolve with your needs - both nationally and internationally - and we have the experience to apply those technologies responsibly and profitably.
STARTING AT THE BEGINNING WITH COMPREHENSIVE DATA.
Before we start firing off solutions, we need to understand who you are, what you are doing, and what you want. What types of freight do you move daily? In our optimization study, we look at your actual current rates, approved carriers, specified capacities, transit times, and other available data are fed into our proprietary system to produce realistic and executable load plans. Global orders from multiple customers, locations or vendors can be combined into multi-pick/drop movements, continuous move shipments, backhauls, and even pooling scenarios.
CRAFTING THE MOST EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS FOR THE FOOD INDUSTRY
We establish parameters that are optimized according to your business practices – across all modes, including parcel, LTL, TL, rail, intermodal, air freight, ocean and multimodal. For example, you can consider pooling points and backhaul opportunities. We will even optimize across multiple modes and international shipments, and identify shipments that should be a parcel shipment or consolidated with others onto a multi-stop truckload. We will also determine the optimal ship dates and delivery appointments based on carrier resources, available docks, and delivery windows.
PROVIDING RAPID RESULTS.
Our software optimization program will analyze every possible load optimization scenario in real time. It then provides you with a comprehensive explanation of how to organize your shipments in the most optimal way, given the provided parameters, and will show the cost, mileage and CO2 emissions reduction for the planned shipments compared to point-to-point loads. Each load itinerary will be described in detail and you’ll have the opportunity to make detailed adjustments if necessary.
