Mesilla Valley Transportation has chosen and implemented Transportation Costing Group (TCG)’s Truckload Cost Information System (TL/CIS) to “develop more effective profitability analyses,” explained the company.
“One of the first things we did with the TCG solution was to analyze the spot quotes we are providing our customers,” said Scott Webb, an executive at Mesilla Valley Transportation. “Our planners used the TCG data to pick the three least profitable spot quoted lanes in their areas and renegotiated a change in rates. That one exercise not only paid for the TL/CIS system but also made a very substantial difference to our bottom line.”
For Mesilla Valley Transportation, TCG enabled actual costed data from TL/CIS to be uploaded to the carrier’s data warehouse and accessed using Excel PivotTable reports that are familiar to the company’s staff and its IT department.
