Parcel shippers must constantly monitor their parcel spend in order to find new opportunities to save money and recover lost funds. But the under-the-surface factors that contribute to parcel budget bloat are often even more critical.

Our recent e-book, The Cold Hard Truth, provides parcel shippers with the information they need to make smart decisions about managing their parcel spend. Here are a few of the more surprising statistics and facts from the e-book that parcel shippers should keep in mind when determining how best to reduce shipping costs:

  • On average, a whopping 31% of a carrier’s invoice is made up of additional fees like accessorials and surcharges.
  • Carrier agreements can have more than 600 negotiable attributes, each impacting the overall parcel spend in a different way.
  • Statistics suggest that parcel auditing produces an annual 2-5% savings return on your current parcel spend.
  • Parcel shippers utilizing a complete auditing, intelligence, and parcel engineering platform can potentially yield 20-50% savings on an annual parcel spend when the data is analyzed and leveraged to optimize the carrier agreement and network utilization tendencies.
  • You can renegotiate a parcel contract at any time with only 30 days notice.
