Turning your transportation department from a cost centre into a
The primary reason for outsourcing transportation is to save money – the transactional spend. At Lakeside, we are no stranger to transactional freight savings. We have been helping our Fortune 500 clients like the Campbell® Company of Canada, Xerox® Corporation and Johnson & Johnson® Inc. save on transportation for years.
The real value, however, of outsourcing through Lakeside is what we like to call SmartSourcing. We don't just “lift and shift” your transportation department from inside your company to inside ours, we drive continuous value and innovation for your entire organization through improved efficiency, better control and enhanced metrics. This allows you to focus on what you do better than your competition – your core competency.
With over 25 years in this business, we won't only execute our clients' transportation management, we help them realize a fundamental shift in how to look at transportation: from cost centre to profit centre.
This paradigm shift is the result of Lakeside's people, processes and technology that produce the “Ideal Transportation Department”, which enhances your tactical transportation functions, and, more importantly, elevates the strategic function within your organization. We call this shift our SmartSourced Transportation Solution.
