World Trade 100 magazine a leading transportation industry publication, and SMC³, an industry trade association, have awarded PITT OHIO, its TRNet affiliate Averitt Express and customer Toshiba with an Alliance Award in the Domestic Freight Single Mode category.
PITT OHIO and Averitt developed a Shipment Consolidation and Pool Distribution Program in an effort to reduce damage claims for customer Toshiba. In addition to reducing damages by over 50%, the collaborative solution resulted in a 15 percent overall cost savings and increased delivery efficiency. The solution also reduced diesel fuel by 125,000 gallons which equates to a reduction of carbon dioxide by approximately 1,099 tons.
The Alliance awards program, now in its second year, recognizes excellence in supply chain performance resulting from the close cooperation and collaboration of supply chain partners. Awarded in five distinct categories, The Alliance looks at more than the outcome of the supply chain partnerships; it also examines the dynamic partnerships that were formed to drive results. A panel of distinguished judges examined the role of each of the partners and the contributions their individual and collective efforts made to solving a supply chain problem or driving change and continuous improvement in a supply chain.
Tom Cleve, Enterprise Solutions Executive at PITT OHIO, Tony Allison from Averitt and Al Garcia, Transportation Manager for Toshiba accepted the award at SMC3’s Jump Start conference in January. A video about the PITT OHIO/Averitt/Toshiba relationship is available at www.worldtradewt100.com/video.
