Did You Know That You're Paying Way Too Much for Inbound Freight Shipments?
The average company spends more than 40 percent of its annual freight budget on inbound freight. Crazy, right?
But for some odd and unexpected reason, most recipients of inbound freight let their vendors and suppliers dictate inbound freight costs as a part of doing business with them.
In case you were wondering, vendors and suppliers do not pay the cost---you do! If freight costs are "included" in the product's price, do you think they're FREE?---think Amazon's "free" shipping.
On average, vendors and suppliers mark up freight costs by 10% to 15%, leaving you with lower profit margins.
