Freight procurement
Project management


Matting AB wanted to reduce shipping costs at the same time as they were keen to find a carrier with which they could build a well-functioning logistics solution. The largest proposition of the goods were sent as package freight B2B in Sweden and the Nordic neighboring countries, but there were also shipments to the rest of Europe. Deliveries to private individuals had increased and needed to be included in the shipping solution.


During the transport procurement, a number of evaluation points for the carriers were identified, in addition to price. In this way, it was ensured that important parameters were captured, such as having continued efficient handling of the warehouse and being able to meet the customer value proposition. The transport procurement resulted in an estimated saving of 16% against previous shipping costs.
