How DSC helped ACH gain control of transportation costs and reporting
The benefits of strong information and data tracking systems

ACH Food Companies Inc. wanted more control over their transportation costs. So, they asked DSC Logistics to take over the transportation management of their business.

Through the use of our robust information and data tracking systems, we provide daily reporting on all shipments that contain information on each load tendered and accepted. Armed with this information, ACH is now able to have full control and visibility of all of their orders.

While providing ACH with tactical daily reports, DSC also provides a monthly trend report to help them understand where their transportation spend is going and to help them identify areas of improvement to reduce costs. By looking at the inbound and outbound costs by mode and comparing those costs from month to month and year over year, DSC is able to identify trends and suggest opportunities. This report has helped ACH to benefit thousands of dollars of savings.
