Transportation and Freight Costs for Purchasers

Learn how to evaluate your transportation spending and how to reduce those costs.

This information will help you understand how to properly analyze your shipping costs as well as how to go about reducing them. With transportation agreements becoming more and more complicated, this information will help you to understand exactly how the carriers are charging, shipment costs versus the various accessorial charges. Shippers generally have no idea ways to benchmark their current pricing and know if there is an opportunity to reduce these costs. Learn the basics of how to evaluate your transportation spend, as well as ways to reduce those costs. This information can help save the average shipper tens of thousands and even potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
