A case study: Helping reduce Feeding America's shipping costs.
Recently, the Lineage Applied Sciences team developed a custom tool to help Feeding America optimize their transportation costs. Feeding America has faced rising trucking costs in recent years—prompting them to ask for our support to optimize how they move food across their network. In particular, they were interested in the viability of intermodal rail transport as a way to reduce their overall transportation costs.
Responding to the problem, the Lineage Applied Sciences Team dug into the data and built out a custom dashboard to help—allowing Feeding America leaders to continuously monitor freight costs along their various shipping lanes and identify the most cost-efficient transportation option for a given shipment.
