Freight Cost Savings Assessment

Immediate savings, normally 20% or more, can be identified and removed from your supply chain freight expenses.

Freight expenses, fuel costs, and other surcharges have increased dramatically over the last three years, and this trend is expected to continue. We provide a cost-free assessment that analyzes your less-than-trailer load (LTL), ocean, and small parcel spending, and identifies opportunities for you to realize potential annualized savings of 20% or more. The savings flow right to your bottom line, and you also preserve the key relationships with carriers and maintain your expected service level.

Presently, do you:

  • Have “delivered pricing” from suppliers?
  • Have someone in your organization responsible for contacting multiple carriers on a a daily basis to seek best pricing? Are you auditing these spending habits on a regular basis?
  • See fuel surcharges of 30% or more on shipments?

How it works – we:

  • Request and evaluate a recent sample of freight spending including fees & surcharges;
  • Evaluate your processes for selection, class determination, dimensionalization & terms;
  • Negotiate on your behalf with carriers for high performance rates, leveraging the strength of a networked spend of over $130 Million in transactions; and
  • Finalize pricing contract agreements, with you listed as the shipper.

Once the program is implemented – you:

  • Select your inbound and outbound carriers;
  • Specify the inbound carriers suppliers must use for your freight;
  • Use these preferred carriers for maximized savings potential (but you can choose any carrier at any time);
  • Schedule pickups and deliveries simply and stress free, and as best for your operations; and
  • Receive the freight bills from these carriers, reflecting the contracted discounts.

“This effort resulted in significant operational improvements which included a radical inventory reduction of nearly 50% and an annual cost reduction of our transportation spend in LTL and ocean freight by 30% and 50% respectively.” Eric, CEO, and Mike, COO at Multisorb West Seneca NY

“This sounds too good to be true. If I didn’t trust you, I wouldn’t do this! Bison Bag enjoyed savings of 27%, or $100,000.” Scott Z, President, Bison Bag
