Cost optimisation

Implementation of the transport Ecotax

Description

Mission

  • For 4 shippers in different sectors of activity, evaluate the financial impact of the Ecotax in 2014, redefine the logistics routes taking into account a trade-off between cost optimisation and delay.
  • Build support kits for tariff negotiations in compliance with the regulatory framework.

AEO support

Methodology

Modelling of the flows of 4 shippers in our ECOTAXE route optimisation and carrier charge and customer surcharge calculation tools:

  • 320,000 vehicle trips
  • 63 million km travelled
  • 10.2 million "Ecotaxable" km

Calculation of the financial gap between "Taxation undergone" and "Surcharge applied" by hauliers in the design office.

Results

Delivery of negotiation kits that can be used over the counter
or in the context of transport tenders.
