Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) November 9, 2010
GENCO ATC, North America’s second largest and a Global Top 50 third-party logistics provider, today announced its continued success within its parcel management program. The company is challenging Fortune 500 Companies to contact parcel experts for a free parcel savings estimate. GENCO ATC is one of the only companies to provide a parcel mediation and audit service, resulting in reduced parcel delivery costs for customers. GENCO ATC’s parcel mediation recommendations have been shown to result in as much as a 20 percent savings on parcel costs within 90 days of implementation.

GENCO ATC supplies to its Fortune 500 clients a mediation service in which it makes recommendations for improved parcel costs. GENCO ATC:
- collects the data supplied by its customer,
- provides a free initial estimate of the savings,
- properly profiles the customer’s business,
- provides carriers the opportunity to provide the best proposal,
- negotiates better rates where appropriate,
- summarizes the multiple proposals using a scorecard approach, with the final decision in the customer’s hand,
- monitors contracts through ongoing parcel audits of 100 percent of every parcel shipped, tracking and flagging discrepancies in contract agreements, for additional cost savings.
“Companies that use shipping services have less and less time to manage supply chain because of trimmed staff, consolidations and mergers. Therefore, there is increased demand for our services in managing bids and various carriers,” said Bill Knasinski, Vice President of GENCO ATC Parcel Solutions. “We leverage the deep industry knowledge that comes from the $3.5 billion worth of parcel shipments to which we have visibility. We put our customers’ shipments in context, against success indicators that our experience has revealed over our 20 years in the business. We drive excess out of the parcel shipping process and ultimately produce meaningful results – reduced delivery costs. We encourage companies to take our parcel challenge, so that we can help them pinpoint opportunities to save on parcel shipments.”
GENCO ATC notes that new trends in the market indicate that carriers, trying to better service their customers, are providing variations of their core services and pricing. Although the number of carriers has not necessarily changed, the selection of services has broadened. More partnerships with the U.S. Postal Service are creating new opportunities for cost reduction as well.
GENCO ATC's parcel mediation and audit service examines each freight movement, fuel cost and accessorial charge and provides customers with more than 134 pieces of detailed information about their profile, including shipping destinations, what dimensions they are shipping, key performance indicators and the multiple points at which they are missing opportunities to save.
