Innovations

we constantly work with our clients to provide innovative services and approaches to drive savings to their bottom line.  Some examples of recent client innovations are described below:

Truckload Transportation 

  • We received a truckload volume bid package from one of our large customers and during the course of analyzing their shipment patterns determined that switching from truckload transportation to dedicated fleet operation on certain high-volume lanes would save approximately 30% on those lanes.  We developed the route sequencing for their inter-facility shipments and developed their program for them.  Customer has now switched to dedicated fleet operation and is realizing the savings on a daily basis.
  • Worked with a customer to analyze their LTL shipment patterns and developed consolidation opportunities for several major destinations.  Have implemented a consolidation program with them to deliver multi-stop truckload shipments to their major destinations resulting in savings of 25% versus LTL costs.
  • Developed Dedicated Capacity program for a major customer that has difficulty getting trucks scheduled for deliveries for loads that are routed late in the day for production reasons.  Program guarantees trucks will be available in return for guaranteed loads effectively providing this customer a dedicated fleet without the required investment.  Customer service levels for late day shipments have increased significantly without any increase in costs.

Capacity

Dingledine Trucking currently operates a fleet of 50 plus tractors and 150 plus trailers to service our customers’ needs.  We have expanded the fleet in the past to meet specific customer needs (e.g. startup of dedicated fleet operations) and are very willing to expand again should the need arise.
