For most shippers, the challenge to reduce freight spend isn’t about setting up cost-saving programs – it’s about gaining visibility into shipping data to support their decisions. The task of gathering all carriers’ delivery data and normalizing was often too time-consuming and lacked real-time visibility. Until now.
Join us to learn the key ways in which transportation-focused data platforms are helping shippers more quickly identify savings, by providing:
- Flexible, transportation-focused analysis tools and pre-configured connections to carriers’ data portals for faster set up
- The same in-depth data insights as carriers have on freight, fuel and accessorial spend, for better negotiating power
- Easy data visualization and analysis tools to uncover cost-saving opportunities such as zone skipping and DC placement
- ‘What if’ tools that enable you to view cost and service implications of changing a carrier or service level across the country or in a specific region
