Award-Winning Logistics Company Adds Innovations to Their Suite of Services to Help Manufacturers and Distributors Save Time and Money
JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — PLP Logistics, a leading third-party logistics company known for providing manufacturers and distributors with innovative transportation solutions, has joined forces with FreightSnap to present their LTL customers and prospects with an automated solution to capture accurate weights and dimensions— and for the first time at a truly affordable cost. In an industry where calculation errors are costly, this combined dimensioner-scale technology has already been shown to:
- Reduce labor from 6 minutes of manual measure/prep to less than 10 seconds.
- Reduce billing exceptions and disputes by approximately 50% or more.
- Enhance damage claim collection with dimensioner stat doc and photos.
- Decrease time and increase likelihood of locating lost freight.
- Leverage negotiations with carriers using enhanced dimensioner data.
“As a former CFO, I advocate for technology that is cost-effective, alleviates time-consuming tasks, and demonstrates bottom-line results. Positive ROI for our new FreightSnap solution is generated in as little as 3 months,” said Doug Russ, co-founder and CEO of PLP Logistics. “After an extraordinarily successful pilot program with one of our existing customers, offering this technology to all of our other cost-conscious customers is the right move,” he added.
As a 3PL that commonly engages with Less-than-Truckload (LTL) shippers, PLP Logistics knows that controlling shipping costs and reducing unexpected charges is critical to their customers’ bottom line. The FreightSnap equipment and software work together to precisely measure freight and upload data to PLP’s Transportation Management System (TMS), in turn creating more reliable quotes for shippers.
“We are eager to partner with PLP and offer this cost-focused innovation to LTL freight shippers,” said Mike Eichenberg from FreightSnap. “Our goal is to make dimensioning a cost-saving game-changer for all customers,” he added.
