Background As the general economy has become a global market place, the number and quality of competitors have increased for most companies. As world wide demand has increased, most companies have experienced a significant increase in the cost of many key raw materials and/or in the cost of all energy related costs. Because of competitive pressures, most companies have limited ability to pass on these cost increases to their customers in the form of price increases. As a result, they are continually challenged to improve the management of their costs. Based on our experiences, many companies, unknowingly, face large opportunities to significantly reduce their freight expenses.
See Glossary of Freight Terms for definitions of commonly used terms for freight and shipping management processes.
