What’s your Company’s Transportation Strategy for 2021?

Posted by CLSon Jan 21, 2021

Are You Planning to Continue Shipping "As Usual" or Improve Your Delivery Strategy?

Do you plan to continue shipping 95% of your volume with one carrier in 2021? Are you actually getting the best deal from a single carrier? Do you feel like all your eggs are in one basket? Are you taking advantage of alternatives to UPS and FedEx?

Do you know that almost every rate, surcharge, accessorial, and extra charge with carriers is negotiable? Do you want to improve your delivery times or take what the carriers are giving you?

As 2020 ended, one thing was sure, small package shippers with volumes of over 2,000 packages per day who didn’t have a real transportation strategy were asking themselves many of the above questions. Carrier capacity and delivery issues caused far more problems this past holiday season than ever.

These systemic carrier infrastructure issues will not be remedied soon and will increasingly affect many of your departments, including shipping, customer service, accounting, sales, etc.  I expect that the 2021 transportation year will feel more like 2020 Part 2.
