Industries We Serve - Manufacturing


Manufacturing is always under pressure to reduce costs. The transport and warehousing of manufacturing materials is an increasingly critical aspect of that overall cost. We help manufacturers produce products on schedule by moving and managing those materials — dry bulk, liquid bulk, hazardous liquids and food grade materials — how they want them, when they want them and where they need them.

We recently created and implemented an innovative toll processing solution for a client in the paper manufacturing industry. Our innovative solution combines Savage transportation, toll processing and inventory management services that enable our client to save on both shipping and storage costs of manufacturing chemicals. Savage established and operates a facility within 150 miles of the final destination that uses the clients’ specified process to turn the chemical into a powder blend. The process and the short distance to the final destination mean that the chemicals can be shipped at a lighter weight and lower quantity with a faster shipping turnaround and delivery — a significant savings in time and money for the manufacturer with much less impact on the environment.
