Take a Data-Based Approach to FedEx® Contract Negotiations
In every carrier agreement, a shipper and carrier agree to certain terms; the shipper will pay a designated amount for specific services. Unfortunately, the terms of those agreements do not always lead to the fairest possible rates for shippers. Part of making sure you get the best value from these companies means not only requesting refunds for service failures like late deliveries, no proof of delivery, invalid surcharges and more—it also means getting the best deal upfront through FedEx® contract negotiations.
Unfortunately, getting the best possible deal requires information that is rarely made readily accessible. Consequently, it can be difficult to prep for FedEx contract negotiations without the proper data and expertise. That’s where VeriShip comes in. With more than 10 years of industry data and business intelligence gained from working with thousands of clients, VeriShip offers a data-based approach proven to drive greater savings within your carrier agreement. We don’t just provide outdated experiential advice to guide you in FedEx contract negotiations like many other parcel auditors. Our data scientists analyze your parcel agreement and compare it to others with similar shipping profiles. In doing so, we are able to uncover massive amounts of information that make it easier to procure favorable deals during FedEx contract negotiations.
Because shippers cannot access this critical data on the internet or from other sources, it’s important to partner with a source who can provide the data you need before entering into FedEx contract negotiations. VeriShip conducts a multi-point audit of your shipping profile in order to determine areas where you can reduce your shipping costs. By passing this information along to our clients and helping them through the process as necessary, we prepare companies for FedEx contract negotiations so they can be successful in their efforts. In fact, shippers who have used VeriShip’s unique, data-based approach to FedEx contract negotiations have seen results of up to 30% in projected savings.
When it comes to negotiating fairer rates and creating a greater system of parcel accountability within your carrier agreement, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. And just like in many other industries, surcharges and fees are an unavoidable part of parcel shipping. That’s why data is so important to your FedEx contract negotiations, whether you are a shipper with a medium or large parcel budget. Proper management of your shipping profile—combined with up-to-date and relevant data—can help you optimize your shipping agreement for long-term success.
