TA Services’ Enhances Schuff Steel Project with Innovative Transportation Management Solution

A new case study highlights how the full-service logistics provider helped Schuff Steel streamline delivery and movement of structural steel for a year-long construction project

Mansfield, Texas—TA Services, a premier full-service logistics provider, announces it was selected by Schuff Steel, one of the largest and most experienced structural steel fabricators and erectors in North America, to oversee the transport and movement of structural steel for a Memphis-based construction project.

When Schuff Steel was chosen by one of the nation’s leading fulfillment centers to provide materials for its new distribution center, the company looked to its core vendors for transportation support. TA Services was able to design a total logistics solution for the project that not only provided daily regional transportation of materials, but also managed offsite storage, additional equipment and onsite personnel needed to complete the project.

“Sustaining a competitive advantage is essential for success,” said Richard Piontek, TA Services’ president for managed transportation. “Our TA Services team is dedicated to providing the very best solutions and services to meet the changing logistics needs of our clients. Whether regular mill-to-mill transport or individual projects, we are always ready to adapt to maximize efficiencies and provide a value-driven, logistics support network.”

TA Services’ comprehensive solution went beyond standard transportation management. Notably, the customized services:

  • Included expertise needed to manage the large amount of oversized and over-dimensional freight
  • Consistently met a time-sensitive drop time window of only 2 hours each day
  • Managed all inbound steel and decking inventory
  • Provided additional local storage yards to facilitate flexible material flow
  • Shuttled daily inventory from onsite storage yards into the jobsite

Schuyler Schuff, Logistic Manager, Schuff Steel, said, “Each project we take on comes with unique challenges that demand out-of-the-box thinking. We consistently drive ourselves and our logistics partners to develop innovative solutions that uphold our standard of excellence and set new benchmarks. TA Services delivered the agility and creativity needed to skillfully execute this project’s complex logistics with the highest degree of quality and performance.”
