Helly Hansen called on CLX Logistics’ services in order to reduce the freight costs of all transport to and within Europe, by means of a tender process.
A benchmark analysis of Helly Hansen’s current carrier contracts revealed that transport rates were not in accordance with market level. Subsequently, over 30 carriers were invited to participate in the tender process. All submissions were evaluated on the basis of quantitative as well as qualitative grounds and the effect of each submission was made transparent via a tailor-made impact calculation model.
The project led to a double-digit annual cost saving, through a reduction and optimization of Helly Hansen’s supplier base. CLX Logistics delivered a tangible plan covering the total cost of operation, including contracting, carrier management plus carrier allocation.
