Does your company feel that it’s lost control of its shipping operations? After an exceptionally tough year of supply chain disruptions and strained carrier capacity, your company and logistics operations could use a break. The pressure on supply chains is showing no sign of easing up anytime soon while manufacturers are having issues covering the cost of shipping.
Parcel shipping is getting expensive. In reality, it already was costly and now it is even more so. The recent rate increase announcements from UPS and FedEx means that it will cost more money to ship in 2018. Reducing parcel shipping costs, without sacrificing service, has become a concern for many businesses. Profit margins continue to narrow for ecommerce companies meaning they will need to make sure that their parcel shipping strategy not only fulfills customer demands but also saves money.
