Other Ideas to Consider
Our transportation and logistics systems experts have worked hard with UPS to prove how we can uncover potential savings opportunities and improvements with our free parcel audit. The purpose of this assessment is to look at 5 areas of your operation that frequently contain “low hanging fruit” for cost reduction and optimized performance:
Rates: Are you using a USPS remailer other than UPS Mail Innovations? Could you incorporate UPS Freight in with your other UPS contract? How do you LTL rates and transit times compare against UPS Freight?
Spend: Are you selecting the right carrier services for the delivery commitment required? Are you wasting money on surcharges, penalties, and accessorials which could be avoided? Could you save money by implementing basic planning and routing controls? Do you recover unexpected costs? Is there one source to analyze all transportation spending (or are costs locked up in silos)?
Process: Have you automated processes that ensure cost-effective transportation spending? Are you wasting time with export and hazmat processing, carrier invoice reconciliations, and generating PODs in A/R? How do you verify addresses, residential status and denied party screening?
Performance: How do the carriers compare in terms of on-time delivery performance, claims settlement, fuel surcharges, and invoice accuracy? Do you have the tools to generate carrier report cards during rate negotiations?
Compliance: Have you implemented policies and procedures to ensure you are meeting regulatory requirements for exercising “reasonable care”? Do you perform restricted party screenings for international shipments? Do you regularly classify tariffs and perform license validations? Are you complying with Hazmat regulations?
