Penske Logistics and Knoll Inc. Asia
Improving reliability while keeping costs low.
Knoll Incorporated is a global leader in office furnishings, design and manufacturing. Increasing cost pressures caused it to source lower cost components in Asia. While Knoll improved pricing, its delivery reliability was poor. Transportation costs were eroding any potential savings. Penske Logistics engineered an innovative, cost-effective international transportation management process. Penske's solution generated freight savings and increased order visibility, yielding nearly a 50 percent reduction in air freight requirements.
