In Depth Profiling:
We start by gathering whatever data we can get our hands on. With this, we develop a shipping profile that includes a recent-shipment history to identify all the shipment origins and destinations, the nature and volumes of the goods shipped, the carriers employed and the current rates being paid.

Persuasion:
We negotiate favourable pricing arrangements with carriers using the leverage of our aggregated carrier spend, market knowledge and procurement process.

Monitoring:
We evaluate delivery performance standards and requirements in conjunction with the carriers being utilized.  We understand that savings cannot come at the expense of service. 

Sophisticated Tactics:
We look for opportunities to improve your network through changing shipment sizes, modes, or frequency.  Sometimes all it takes is another set of eyes to see opportunities where others have not.

Carrier Transitions:
Where warranted, we will assist with substituting current carriers with superior alternatives. We make sure these changes have no impacts on your business operations so you can reap the benefits, without impacting customer service.

Comprehensive Reporting:
We provide daily, weekly, and monthly reports as needed to demonstrate our adherence to customer expectations and tracking toward savings estimates.
