ROI Tool Plugs Your Shipping Money Leaks

Updated: May 13


Happy Holidays! Over this past year, we have received many inquiries requesting some magic way to reduce parcel/freight shipping costs and gain more visibility over shipping operations. Unfortunately, there's no magic wand that fixes everything in one fell swoop.

However, digging into your current shipping situation with the correct tools and questions will give you a solid understanding of where you’re at right now. In most cases, this exercise uncovers at least one, and sometimes more, serious money leaks that need to be plugged.

We have invested many hours and years of expertise crafting a current shipping operation ROI tool that helps our clients compare their current shipping operation to industry averages and ask the correct internal questions to identify those pesky money leaks.

This month we're going to focus on key parcel and LTL/TL pallet freight savings opportunities that, when executed correctly, result in significant, hard-dollar shipping cost spend reductions. Below you will see a basic “areas of concern” overview along with respective industry averages for your review. If you’re interested in getting a copy of our new shipping project ROI tool, contact us with your email address, and we’ll send a live version over right away!

Since this is the last OnShip Blog of 2018, I want to thank our growing list of OnShip clients for your business over this past year. Thanks to your continued support we are proud to say that when OnShip 2.0 launches early next year it will have everything you need to automate virtually all the saving opportunities listed below...and then some! Is this a great country or what??
