Ardmore Power Logistics creates and hosts customized routing guides for customers. These guides direct shippers to the preferred carrier based on shipment destination, size, weight and urgency.
"Route guides are a key component of our freight management process because they reduce cost and enhance service simultaneously."
Route guide-mandated carrier selection concentrates freight spend on a limited number of carriers. The concentration or bundling of transportation spend increases our ability to negotiate volume discounts for our customers. The use of a limited number of carriers allows Ardmore Logistics to better manage their performance. Route guides are a key component of our freight management process because they reduce cost and enhance service simultaneously.
The Ardmore system allows customer and vendor personnel to access the route guide online. In most cases parcel and motor freight shipments can be tendered directly to the carrier via the route guide without the need to make a single phone call or even leave the Web site. Because the route guide is published online, customer requirements can be communicated and updated at minimal administrative cost. A further advantage of our online interface over a hard copy document is the ease and economy of changes in carrier selection.
