Driving the right transportation solution

Whether you’re delivering a small parcel direct to a consumer’s doorstep… an LTL shipment to a storefront… or a full truckload to the distribution center of a big-box retailer like Walmart, you want the same thing. Efficiency and speed at the best possible cost. Now more than ever, TAGG Logistics delivers.

TAGG is well known as one of America’s leading direct-to-consumer (DTC) fulfillment solutions—delivering small parcels in one or two days to just about everywhere. But did you know that TAGG fulfills and delivers palletized freight as well, both LTL and truckload? Our dedicated transportation team, technology and infrastructure are an important part of TAGG’s total fulfillment solution. Let’s take a closer look.

Taking a 360-degree view

As part of TAGG, LeSaint Logistics provides our customers with insightful transportation solutions that anticipate and scale to meet long-term customer needs. “We not only think about what our customers need today, but also how we can improve service to them a year from now,” said Keith Warren, Vice President Transportation. “We accomplish that by taking a holistic, 360-degree view of every challenge. Then, we customize transportation solutions that are designed to reduce cost and time to fulfillment.”

Warren describes how process improvement is key to continually enhancing performance over time. “We know from experience that incremental improvements to processes and technologies across the board can lead to streamlining workflows, increasing efficiency and driving even greater cost savings,” he said.

A prime example is an LTL freight payment system that handles literally thousands of transactions daily—as well as state-of-the-art transportation broker services that provide fast turnaround on freight quotes and execution on transactions. TAGG’s LeSaint team can also provide customized, competitive quotes beyond what any freight load board can provide now.

The road to greater value in transportation

Now, fast-growing companies of any size—with any transportation need—can tap into TAGG for a single-source, turnkey solution for transportation, warehousing and fulfillment. TAGG’s LeSaint team is expert at consolidating shipments, making smarter transportation decisions and driving a smooth fulfillment operation from order through delivery. “It’s all about getting goods to customers quickly, on-time, in-full and damage-free,” Warren said.

Here are just some of the reasons why we’re the first choice for transportation:

  • Integrated solution: Combining warehousing and transportation under one umbrella simplifies operations—reduces chargebacks and other transportation costs—and puts problem resolution on the fast track. Why is this integration so valuable? Case in point: fulfillment warehouse staff can redirect and manage truck traffic as needed to maximize warehouse efficiency, manage costs and help ensure on-time delivery.
  • Scalable, turnkey resources: “Forget the burden of acquiring transportation assets on your own,” Warren said. “Everything you need is right here, so you don’t need to make the internal investment of staffing, infrastructure and technology yourself.” Even better, TAGG and LeSaint’s resources can scale up as your shipping volume grows.
  • Expertise you can rely on: Gain broader access to carriers and competitive rates, tap into logistics brokers with extensive experience, enjoy complete visibility of your freight from warehouse to delivery—and much more.

Many challenges, one solution

“Customers come to us for a variety of transportation challenges,” Warren said. For example, a company might be shipping to the same customer several times a day—when a single delivery would save a lot of money. Or a customer may not have total visibility into shipments, so ETAs are a mystery. Maybe chargebacks are a growing issue. Or finding a stable, reliable transportation network seems impossible.

For all these reasons and more, TAGG’s LeSaint team is the one transportation solution that empowers companies to delegate their transportation needs. So they can redirect their time and attention elsewhere, such as product innovation.

“Our holistic approach helps put the logic in logistics,” Warren said. And that confidence fuels the fire for companies everywhere that have had pressing transportation needs, but no sure solution. Until now.
