Small Parcel – How to Avoid Leaving Money on the Table

Always benchmark your small parcel rates to see if you’re getting the best pricing given your usage patterns and volume. A consultant can often do this at little or no cost. Conduct a detailed analysis instead of just comparing “list discounts,” since depending on your shipping profile, charges like minimum package charges, fuel surcharges, residential surcharges and additional handling charges can have a big impact on your overall cost. If you’re not getting best-in-class pricing for your volume, a bidding process backed by detailed usage information and industry analysis can result in competitive pricing.
