How companies can reduce transport costs – the JCB example

With high fuel costs, a stagnant economy and impending taxes designed to reduce industry’s carbon footprint, businesses are increasingly looking to streamline their transport processes – whilst maintaining a high quality of service to their customers.

British transport management company 3t (www.3t-europe.com) work with international clients to reduce their costs and carbon emissions. 3t has worked with JCB Service, the division of JCB responsible for providing replacement parts throughout a global infrastructure of independent dealers to the end customer, since 2008. During that time, the company has introduced many time and cost saving procedures including:

· A secure dealer web portal, including one stop shop track and trace

· Greenhouse gas reporting following Defra guidelines

· Multiple carrier integration

· A label manager to manage multiple carrier label requirements

· A parts database to hold packing information on multiple product references

· Control tower concept for sourcing stock within multiple warehouses

Tim Fawkes, Business Development Manager at 3t would like to submit a case study style article examining how companies can improve their transport processes through the example of their work with JCB. This would include a summary of some of the transport issues facing businesses, as well as an explanation of the work carried out at JCB and how this has enabled the company to become more efficient whilst reducing costs and carbon emissions
