Get your life back.

A Transparent Path audit can help you get the resources you need.

An objective, third-party audit of your supply chain operations can help justify much-needed resources, workflow changes, and technologies.

Through sheer force of will…

You and your team have been soldiering through the pandemic, finding replacement drivers, reefers, chassis, and alternate routes. New regulations are coming. Your planner just quit. Management keeps asking for updates. When your day consists of endless phone calls, Zoom calls, and emails, you’d love to investigate potential failure points and potential efficiencies, but right now, you just. Have to. Make it. Through. Today.

Get out in front. Stay out in front.

Our third-party operational audits are designed to give you your life back. We identify the operational and communication bottlenecks, the problem suppliers, the ESG impacts, and the recurring pain points in your logistics operations, and we create a set of recommendations for management — including cost justifications. And we leave you with a scorecard you can use without us. We act as your champion within the organization, reinforcing your voice with outside expertise earned at places like Amazon, Star Market, and Earth Economics.
