Freight Cost Reductions Will Increase Your Profits

Freight cost reductions are important for every business to counteract the rising costs and fees of parcel, LTL and TL shipping. Your business needs to learn how to ship smarter and more efficiently to protect the rising shipping fees from eroding your bottom line.

Planning is Key

Many common suggestions for reducing your freight costs simply involve better planning regarding your shipping method – reducing burdens on your carriers will translate to savings for your business.

Think about timing your shipments for an off-peak day: less demand on certain days will reduce the costs.
Take advantage of shipping on backhauls: freight carriers want to make both trips worthwhile, as they do not want to travel back with an empty truck; they will offer better rates to shippers who take advantage of their return trip.
Become a reliable shipper: carriers like being able to plan on having a steady, reliable volume from a shipper. This allows them to build out their network and deliver their freight efficiently.
