March 17, 2014
Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. and Averitt Express Inc. had been working together in the Southeast for two decades with mutual success. As the two companies describe the relationship, they often worked together on solutions, not just prices. As a result, the two were able to create more supply chain flexibility and savings for Toshiba.
Through their award-winning Pool Distribution Program, Averitt and PITT OHIO was able to help Toshiba realize improved efficiencies throughout their network. The results: a 25% overall cost saving resulting from a reduction in damages of over 50%, a total network cost savings of $690,000 - $1.8 million, and a reduction of emissions by 251 tons.
