General Parcel Freight Contract Negotiation Questions

I have the lowest shipping rates possible. How can Lojistic improve our parcel shipping contract?

It is common knowledge that freight and small parcel carriers sell freight shipping contracts that maximize carrier profit. Though your company may have a very qualified team of individuals managing small parcel and freight contract negotiations, it is probable that a lot of money was left on the negotiating table once the initial contract negotiating process was completed.

pricing experts at Lojistic use highly developed analytic software and industry knowledge to analyze current FedEx contracts and UPS shipping contracts. Lojistic's carrier pricing analytics, freight cost knowledge, carrier contract negotiation expertise, and shipping industry experience enable our team to precisely identify areas of opportunity to improve existing small parcel and freight contracts.

I am a great negotiator, why would I hire Lojistic to do something that I can do myself?

Expert negotiating abilities constitute a small part of Lojistic's toolset when reducing freight costs via freight and small parcel contract negotiations.

An effective analysis of any small parcel carrier contract involves many variables.

I have a great relationship with my shipping carrier. Will hiring a third-party contract negotiator jeopardize that relationship?
