The dairy supply chain is complex. Seasonality, perishability, schedule changes, volatile fuel prices and driver shortages challenge dairy transportation procurement professionals every day, from coast to coast.
Finding the “right” price for milk movement from farm-to-plate is a critical challenge. Our extensive work in the arena suggests that milk handlers pay as much as 15% more than necessary. Using a robust model that examines cost at a granular level, our team provides handlers with actionable insight into hauling costs, enabling better pay consistency and reduced overall outlays.
