11 A Real Return-On-Investment Transportation is the glue that holds the supply chain together and accounts for almost 50 percent of an average company s logistics costs. Businesses cannot manage and control their transportation spend without having timely, accurate and complete visibility of their shipping costs and activities. As technical achievements continue to improve we will see more demand for 10 automated, full service solutions. Also, with the current economic conditions, companies must find ways to cut costs, improve transparency, and increase profits. By implementing a TMS, companies can reduce their transportation costs 10-30%» Contract Management - Estimated 10% reduction in administrative costs» Load Optimization - Estimated 5-17% reduction in annual freight spend» Least Cost Mode/ Carrier Selection - Estimated 2-7% reduction in annual freight spend» Shipment Execution - Estimated 1-5% reduction in annual freight spend» Performance Improvements - Estimated 1-3% reduction in annual freight spend True cost of internal freight bill processing According to Ernst & Young, the true costs of processing and paying a freight invoice internally is $11.04-$14.72, which includes incoming mail processing, sort and data entry processing, imaging, pre-auditing, rate database maintenance, checks and report control processing, exception item processing, customer service, other support required, data processing hardware, postage and supplies, administrative, overhead and other costs. Therefore, the Return On Investment for companies to outsource this function is great. CTSI-Global charges cents to process, which includes many checks and balances, verification, allocation and reporting. Investing in a transportation spend management program can help reduce these costs, ensuring a competitive position in the global marketplace. CTSI-Global will grow with you. 11
