Lifestyle Brand Reduced Their Freight Spend By 10%
While Adding Guaranteed Delivery Service, Providing Dedicated Support & Charging Zero Upfront Costs
A rapidly-growing publicly-traded lifestyle brand geared toward the modern American sought out Freight Management, Inc. (FMI) when the company expanded the number of retail locations. They needed a logistics provider that ensured guaranteed service levels and gave them access to a user-intuitive transportation management system (TMS) – while saving them money in the process.
Freight Management, Inc. expertly set up My Freight Manager®, its revolutionary TMS, and trained the lifestyle brand’s personnel on how to use it. The FMI team also implemented the company’s carriers and built them a web-based routing guide. As a result, our client was able to go live with these services within 72 hours and experienced the following:
- 10% freight spend reduction
- 100% claims-free deliveries
- 99.9% on-time deliveries
The lifestyle brand experienced a growth surge that led to an expansion of its retail stores in 2016. In order to meet the need, the company required a new logistics provider. Leadership recognized that Freight Management, Inc. had the extensive carrier network, proprietary technology and comprehensive managed logistics services to save them money while providing the services they needed.
In response, FMI gave this lifestyle brand the following:
- Hosted a less-than-truckload (LTL) sourcing event
- Created a drop trailer program
- Carrier sourcing
- Contract management
- Procurement and freight brokerage
- Freight audit
- Freight payment

- Proprietary My Freight Manager TMS technology
Working with Freight Management, Inc. also allowed the lifestyle brand to add guaranteed delivery to its retail stores, provide dedicated support and charge zero upfront costs.
