Today, shippers have many carrier options during complex shipping processes. Are your shippers spending enough time to research the best rate and shipping option? Many shippers use a carrier’s site and enter the order information to identify the best service but this process is costly and inefficient. Selecting your shipping method with a carrier will often result in rates only from that carrier which can result in very high costs and loss of significant saving opportunities. More efficient shipping operations can significantly cut costs and allow your focus to be on items more important to your business.
To maximize savings and reduce costs, a rate shopping tool can prove very effective. If you don’t have a rate shopping tool users are required to follow these steps to complete shipping operations:
- Go to carrier websites which is time consuming and labor intensive
- Manually enter shipping details logging into carriers’ websites
- Manually choose option for shipping needs
Imagine a software that has all shipping carriers’ options, services from multiple carriers in one place from which to choose. Wouldn’t that be something you would integrate with your shipping operations?
Utilizing ShipConsole, a multi-carrier freight shopping tool, is one of the best strategies to find the most cost effective shipping options for every order that is placed.
