Dan Goodwill and Associates - Freight Management and Transportation Consulting Services

Freight RFP Consulting

Freight transportation services can represent up to ten percent of a manufacturer or retailer’s overall expense. Strategic sourcing is one component of supply chain management that our company has particular expertise in. The steps in our strategic sourcing process are:

  • Assessment of your company's current spend (what is bought where?)
  • Determination of the supply market (who offers what?)
  • Total cost analysis (how much does it cost to provide those goods or services?)
  • Identification of suitable suppliers
  • Development of a sourcing strategy (where to buy what considering the demand and supply situation, while minimizing risk and costs)
  • Negotiation with suppliers (products, service levels, prices, geographical coverage, etc.)
  • Implementation of new supply structure
  • Track results and restart assessment (continuous cycle)
