Mini Logistics Case Study: Carwash Provider

Delivering cost savings of 10% through a broader carrier pool and negotiating competitive Less-Than-Truckload rates.

Our mini case studies provide a quick snapshot of how we've helped clients optimize and manage their supply chain and logistics services.


Our logistics client

A leading national carwash provider renowned for its excellence in carwash equipment, comprehensive service offerings, and commitment to sustainable chemistry.


GEODIS initially served one business unit as a transportation management (TM) provider. Our client was impressed by our service and support and decided to shift all of their domestic transportation across 12 facilities to GEODIS.


Logistics challenges

Our client was going through an acquisition and needed an integrated transportation management solution within a 60-day timeframe.


Logistics goals

Our client needed a reliable transportation management partner who could provide a complete transportation solution. They insisted on logistics integration without any disruption to their business or acquisition.


Logistics solution and results

The majority of our client’s freight is delivered to construction sites. We understand these delivery challenges and collaborate across our client, their customers, and the construction and project teams at installation sites.


We delivered 10% cost savings for our client through a successful, integrated transport network. We achieved this through:


  • Broadening the carrier pool to increase the range of transportation services and providing cost-effective options
  • Reducing reliance on the spot market, which is more expensive than pre-negotiated rates
  • Negotiating competitive less-than-truckload (LTL) rates with carriers 


Since then, our client has taken advantage of more GEODIS logistics services including freight forwarding and customs brokerage.


"The GEODIS project management and implementation teams were on point!  All milestones were completed on time. Today, our systems and processes are much more robust and we enjoy better data and analytics with an intuitive solution."
