Case Studies

Study #1 Retailers

In 2008, Aire-Ride Transfer participated in a case study for a major US retailer.
The retailer bought their fixtures and transportation services together from the manufacturer. After examining the total cost of the fixtures and transportation for their new store openings and remodels it was determined that if the retailer had unbundled the transportation portion and purchased it separately they would have saved 15%.

Aire-Ride then examined loading techniques and delivery scheduling and determined that if their suggestions where implemented the combined savings would have resulted in a 26% savings to the retailer. The recommendation was to unbundle the services and buy the fixtures from the fixture manufacturer and buy the transportation from Aire-Ride and have Aire-Ride examine loading techniques and scheduling.

Study #2 Manufacturers

Big Box Retailer Story – Warehousing, assembly and transportation
A Store fixture manufacture was importing fixtures for a “Large Retail Client”. Aire-Ride Transfer handled the complete transportation, assembly and implementation for 6 same day store openings (nine trailer loads per store). By having the fixtures shipped KD (knocked down) the Long Beach California facility saved our client valuable time and freight charges. The Aire-Ride team supervised the unloading and the fixture reconciliation of 29 overseas containers. Aire-Ride’s team assembled the fixtures and prepared for blanket wrapped transportation to the individual stores. Each store received 9 trailer loads and 54 trailer loads were successfully delivered on the same day.

The end result, Aire-Ride Transfer’s experienced project management and logistics team:

  • Lowered overall cost
  • Saved transportation time
  • Opening store dates fulfilled
