Abstract : This work is an analysis of the potential savings of the Regional Freight Consolidation Center Program (RFCCP) . The feasibility studies, published in 1987 and 1988, explored the RFCCP concept under ideal conditions, presenting a best case scenario. The purpose of this study is to re-evaluate the possible savings in transportation dollars of the RFCCP based on the first 3 years of experience with limited RFCC operations. Experience with the vendor program is based on operations at the five commercial sites; experience with the pool program is limited to the one operational pool site located in Los Angeles. The objectives are: to calculate the transportation cost of direct shipment; to calculate the cost of those same shipments through the RFCCP and to compare the results of those calculations on a site and on an overall basis. The scope of the study encompasses both vendor and pool operations at the 11 RFCC sites, using data from the period July 1989 through June 1990; the scope of this work does not include the Primary Distribution System. vendor, pool, distribution.
