Talking Rain Selects XPO Logistics for Distribution Management
XPO has transformed Talking Rain’s truckload distribution network by implementing a comprehensive control tower solution that includes procurement, freight payment and digital tracking. The XPO Connect™ transportation platform gives Talking Rain real-time visibility into its network, and a dedicated XPO team manages shipments of Sparkling Ice® and Talking Rain® products with rigorous carrier oversight and analytics.
In the first nine months of implementation, XPO managed the transportation of more than 32,000 shipments for Talking Rain. The company’s average procurement cost per truckload has improved by as much as 6% below comparable retail market rates, with 100% reliability in securing capacity.
