transportation / 3PL

For organizations that have matured beyond the tactical focus on lanes and coverage, a 3PL partner must play a strategic role, moving past just transporting and storing to identifying problems, implementing solutions, and adding systems-wide value. We call this LETM, or Logistics, Engineering, Transportation, Management.

Derek's experience allows him to support optimized 3PL management, which we call LETM: Logistics, Engineering, Transportation, Management.


Derek's unique approach guides the shipper in shifting its management system to better reflect the role supply chain plays in the business using LETM. The shipper and its 3PL partner re-evaluate:

  • What is our core purpose?

  • What value do we create?

  • Are we strategically aligned?

  • Are we culturally aligned?


Derek's methodology creates alignment of purpose, value, strategy, and culture, providing far more value than what is seen in a transportation budget variance report and old-school commoditized approaches to negotiation and selection.
