Sal brings deep expertise in service operations and supply chain for logistics clients. He also has broad client-service experience across the transportation sector, including trucking, rail, shipping, and road fleets. He has led significant client transformations, generating bottom-line impact and building sustainable capabilities.

Examples of Sal’s recent client work include the following:

  • leading a comprehensive operational and commercial transformation for a prominent road-fleet company, with a focus on reducing direct labor cost through operational efficiencies, improving fleet-management practices, and pricing and revenue management
  • supporting a service-delivery transformation for a leading logistics and trucking company, redesigning core service-delivery elements such as routing, dispatch, and performance management
  • advising on a broad business transformation for a major fleet company anchored on organizational postmerger integration, procurement and operations, and sales generation
  • helping establish a broad operations transformation for a large shipping company, a significant portion of which was centered around change management and capability building
  • leading a fleet-optimization effort for a large pharmaceutical client, focused on developing a robust fleet cost base through interviews and observations to identify opportunities

Before joining McKinsey, Sal worked as a process engineer at multinational computer technology company, where he evaluated operations strategies for the global fulfillment model and managed large capital projects, which led to capacity, productivity, and quality gains.
