GSI™ is an up-to-date haulier matrix, based on costs combined across a number of large manufacturers who, in our opinion, buy sensibly in terms of the prices paid and the service levels achieved.
Each and every consignment is compared against our Gold Standard cost based on the distance of customers from your warehouse and the order size placed.
The extent by which we need to increase (or decrease) the detailed values in the Gold Standard Matrix produces a that Gold Standard Index™ fairly reflects your competitiveness.
We compare your overall result and also compare costs for any nominated :
- mileage band,
- pallet band,
- sales channel or
- Major Account
Fewer than 20% of sites achieve Gold Standard, but these are evenly distributed across the core UK regions
