One of the largest solar ground-mounting system manufacturers reduces costs with Navisphere

Challenge:

Due to short lead times, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solar energy ground-mounting systems wasn’t always able to secure flatbed capacity.

Solution:

Using Navisphere technology, C.H. Robinson helps them plan shipment schedules in advance. They now work with vendors for additional lead time to make planning easier and save money on transportation.

Result:

  • Guaranteed capacity from C.H. Robinson
  • Fewer liquidated damages eating into profits
