The challenge of optimizing the ecommerce delivery chain lies in striking the best possible balance between service level & cost.
That means meeting the demands of customers, service providers and the operational set-up, while also guaranteeing satisfactory lead times and enabling related added services such as tracking, COD, insurance levels, etc.
Professional ecommerce stakeholders work with a wide variety of international shipping solutions and partners, for many different shipping channels and products. That represents a huge potential for making savings and adding value.
And that's where we come in.
Identifying potential savings through contract & rate management.
Structured status analysis & feedback to decide your next steps.
Managing bids & negotiating with providers to reduce your shipping costs.
Our goal is to optimize our clients' international shipping costs.
We identify the most cost effective shipping solution, one which meets the requirements set by the online merchant, marketplace, service provider or logistics operation.
Our expertise lies in knowing the total cost of a solution – including opportunity cost and project cost of adding or changing to a new solution – and selecting the best solution available on the market.
We reduce your international shipping costs by finding the optimal routes and rates, provided by the most appropriate partners. The process is simple:
We start with a free and non-binding preliminary evaluation of your current set-up, identifying potential areas for optimizing and generating savings on your international shipping costs and logistics through effective rate & contract management.
After signing an NDA, we evaluate your current contract costs, and provide you with a structured status analysis and feedback about optimization options.
Our primary solution focuses on contract & rate management, but we can also cover operational workflows in your warehouse or fulfilment center.
Ideally, we discover that your current solutions are already optimal – giving you the assurance that your company is already doing a great job!
But that's not usually the case. As a rule, we can reduce our clients' international shipping costs by at least 20%.
