MetaExpert 10X ROI Logistics Solution™

The success of the 10X ROI Logistics Solution lies in the ability to develop superior processes, and train internal employees to execute them, in the right way and at the right time. Long term, sustainable results are obtained because employees are engaged and motivated to continuously implement the program moving forward.  Employee behaviors are changed without changing the entire corporate culture.

There are three targeted tactics that create the 10X ROI every time:

  1. Training <hyperlink to the Second full width section>– engage employees to think differently, in order to make sustainable, consistent improvements.
  2. Waste Removal <hyperlink to the third full width section>– everything must add value to the customer, employee or company.
  3. Data and Analysis <hyperlink to the fourth width section>– using relevant and timely measurements to gain improvements.

Results:  Private Fleet Recycle Hauler – built and implemented a plan to improve profits by $8.2M annually.

Change Behavior and Change Your Bottom Line

Woosley and Swanson said “People would rather live with a problem they can’t solve, than accept a solution they don’t understand.”  <Waqas:  make this stand out – in italics and or a different color font – and larger font.>

  5. Employee retention
  6. Employee morale and culture

KPIs Aren’t Always Enough

  7. When to stop throwing good money after bad for equipment
  8. Owning versus leasing – do we buy or rent? Full service lease vs. company mechanics
  9. How miles impact the bottom line (labor, maintenance, equipment)
  10. How to conduct a root-cause and gap analysis
