Small Parcel Freight Shipping - A Whole New Approach
The small parcel freight industry is notorious for their bait and switch tactics. Even if you have done an exceptional job negotiating a great tariff, the carriers are more than likely to bill extra for a variety of add-ons that may or may not apply and are buried deep within their rules tariff.
Small parcel freight management logistics allow Rock Solid to guarantee clients a competitive edge in the marketplace by:
Contract Benchmarking & Negotiation
Rock Solid has extensive experience in the small parcel freight industry. We work closely with cutting edge software that allows us to effectively choose the best shipping lanes. Our perspective and experience help secure the best small parcel freight pricing and identify other cost saving opportunities. Using an entire mix of carriers including UPS, FedEx, USPS, and others, we maximize small parcel freight management logistics.
Through detailed small parcel freight audits and analysis, the Rock Solid logistic management team helps to identify the most effective and efficient shipping methods.
It is important for Rock Solid to help clients by answering questions such as: Why is two day air service used when a lesser priced ground shipment will arrive at or before the same date? Is your new distribution center geographically optimized? Still operating with a paper-based approval system? Your TMS system may not be delivering you the premium freight visibility that you really need. Our management logistic experts in supply chain cost reductions will ensure your shipping processes and technology deliver maximum efficiency. Through this process, we always keep an eye out for "accidental freight" fees, and even keep energy efficiency top-of-mind to ensure that your goods are being moved in the most sustainable ways available.
Bill Auditing & Service Recovery
Reviewing transportation bills ensures clients are being billed accurately and that all account numbers and contracts are set up correctly in carriers' billing systems. Rock Solid’s small parcel freight management logistics team works with you to implement a robust refund filing process. This enables companies to receive full and timely refunds for carrier service failures. This service also includes analysis of all accessorial listed in the carrier's rules tariff such as; residential fees, beyond fees, out of area fees, and fuel surcharges.
