The No. 1-ranked cancer care center in the U.S needed to manage fifty-thousand incoming parcels a year, and they had some concerns. Would the shipping fees on their invoices be accurate? Could their deliveries be consolidated? And most importantly, was there any way they could charge freight costs directly to specific accounts?
With these questions top of mind, MD Anderson issued an RFI for freight management services, and we’re proud to say they chose VPL as their freight management provider. Although we were in competition with larger companies, they recognized us as the company leading the way in the industry.
MD Anderson was thrilled that technical implementation of our program was completed in just one day, and that staff involvement was less than ten hours. Today, VPL is managing approximately 53,000 incoming parcels a year for the Center, and they’re thrilled with our electronically delivered consolidated weekly invoicing with 100% of the shipping charges pre-allocated to the appropriate GL accounts.
Even more importantly, in 2018 alone, MD Anderson saved more than $800,000 with the VPL freight management program.
