Contracts with carriers are a must in your business. They assure you consistency in your rates, predictability, accountability. Clearly, they are necessary to control the expenses associated with transportation.
Transportation companies are often opaque about their pricing, rarely disclosing the particulars of rates/prices they have negotiated with customers. Two companies with similar shipping or freight needs are likely paying different rates and fees. In fact, identical shipments could be charged different rates entirely.
- What can you negotiate with these companies?
- How does each carrier differ in their contract negotiations?
- Who has the power to make price adjustments at the carrier?
- Are there incentives or discounts that can be applied?
