Strategic Shippers Get Better Rates! Become a Strategic Shipper through a Rapid Assessment
Mar 29, 2018
One of the things we've been focusing on for the past few weeks is the importance of being a strategic shipper. How important is this to you and your company? Here is a short excerpt from this week’s Perfect Storm Webinar, that further confirms what we have been telling you for the past couple of months: “Tactical/transactional” shippers are going to pay more to move their freight!"
How much more? Right now the numbers that keep getting thrown out are these tactical shippers will see rates 8% - 12% higher than strategic shippers. In a recent blog we highlighted the fact that these shippers pay more because they are using a flawed procurement process to source their transportation.
There’s never been a more important time to be a strategic shipper. If you’re not convinced listen to this panel of experts from our webinar on March 28.
In order to become a strategic shipper you need to evaluate and understand the tools available for you to manage your transportation rates in both the short and long term. One outstanding tool you should consider is our Rapid Assessment Process. It starts with a complimentary consulting session and involves the potential to go into more depth. There are four main benefits of a Rapid Assessment that we provide:
1. Immediate cost savings—changes you can make today to improve profitability tomorrow.
2. Tips for sustaining those cost savings over an extended period of time.
3. Evaluation of practices and process that are driving the consumption of transportation.
4. Analysis of operational changes that could provide a competitive advantage.
We provide all of this because we're on your team, we're here to help and we're passionate about seeing you be successful.
