Successfully Negotiate a Better Deal with FedEx Benchmarking Data
As a shipper, you know the terms of your FedEx® agreement are incredibly important to your overall spend. Managing costs and driving down unnecessary expenses may often come from inefficiencies in your carrier agreement. But often shippers find that when they request to renegotiate their carrier agreement, they lack the FedEx benchmarking information they need about shippers of similar sizes, shipping profiles, and industries to effectively negotiate. Without access to comparable numbers from other shippers, it can be an uphill battle to leverage yourself effectively and optimize your parcel spend.
That’s why empowering yourself with FedEx benchmarking data is a critical first step towards driving results for your business. In a competitive and ever-evolving industry, parcel consulting is no longer enough. That’s why VeriShip utilizes a unique, data-based approach to optimizing your carrier agreement. With FedEx benchmarking information from thousands of clients gained from more than a decade in the industry, we have both the data and experience to ensure our customers succeed in their carrier agreement negotiations. We can benchmark your rates based on information we’ve collected from millions of invoices.
In fact, some shippers who have used VeriShip’s approach and FedEx benchmarking data are projected to save up to 30%! As it becomes increasingly common for carriers like FedEx to drive their own revenues through various surcharges and accessorial fees, parcel shippers will have to be careful to negotiate better rates on these charges. Although these charges are a fact of life that cannot be avoided for those in parcel shipping and logistics, they can be negotiated to much more manageable and balanced rates with proper FedEx benchmarking.
VeriShip’s clients gain access to some of the most cutting-edge FedEx benchmarking data available and can save between 10-30% of their parcel spend. Our data scientists have spent more than a decade helping shippers with prescriptive solutions designed to save them money, and the ongoing analysis provided can help shippers understand how new rate changes and carrier innovations may impact their parcel carrier agreement in the future. A lack of access to comparable rates from other shippers shouldn’t impede you from getting the rates you deserve, and VeriShip can empower you with the FedEx benchmarking information you need to be successful.
