Fresh Perspectives. Disciplined Execution. More Profit.
As a general business, cost-containment or turnaround consultant, you are acutely aware of the challenges set before your clients. Additionally, you’re charged to prove your worth to your client base year after year. Ring true? If so, you may be missing one of the fastest ways to deliver more client value and generate incremental good will with existing clients as well as speed up the sales cycle for prospective customers—an accurate transportation cost analysis and rate negotiation engagement.
Acting as a sub-consultant under your firm’s direction, Franklin/Everett’s proven processes will promptly, usually within two weeks and regularly with less than 6-8 hours of total client work involved, identify your clients’ unique pricing complexities and deliver a written cost reduction plan. This plan can deploy almost immediately upon acceptance and start delivering hard savings in as little as two additional weeks. Savings of over 20% are commonplace, even for companies who were previously convinced that their rates “are as good as it gets”.
