If you keep an eye on consolidation, there is often money to be saved. By consolidating shipments as a large mass versus many small shipments, you have better opportunities for optimizing the space. The cheapest solution is to consolidate into a filled truck with direct delivery. To be able to fill trucks most frequently, an analysis of the shipping statistics can often contribute to a reduction in cost. A frequency analysis could also be relevant when it comes to deciding how many times you want to send out from your company. Here you look at volume versus cost and assess what makes the best sense for you and your customers’ expectations.
A case study conducted by FREJA 4PL Services has shown that there is a great potential for savings in transportation costs if the interval between consolidations is increased. Access the case by filling out the form below.
