Reduce Freight Costs

The cost of fuel is back on the rise, and freight costs are expected to rise in 2011. If you rely on freight shipping for your business logistics, you may want to consider how you can reduce freight costs.

The best way to reduce freight costs is by renegotiating your freight vendor contract with full information. If you use a corporate card, you can look through your transaction history or reports to see how much you’re spending on shipping. These reports can also show you how often you make shipments, and from there you can consider consolidating to fewer shipments if possible. If you have a scale in-house, you can weigh products before they are shipped, so you know what shipment bracket your goods usually fall under. Then, armed with this information, you can negotiate with the freight vendor to get a good deal for 2011 and keep shipping costs as low as possible.
