Freight, Logistics and Small Package Strategic Sourcing Services
We provide the resources you need to drive the best prices in your freight and small package delivery services.
Our goal is to optimize the cost of your organization’s domestic and international transportation activities. Our team will work to leverage your overall spend and improve the efficiencies of your organization’s routing processes. Additionally, we will help implement an efficient and accurate freight payment processing methodology.
Source One will custom design your sourcing strategies based on your needs. We will incorporate market conditions, supplier abilities, geographical locations and your shipment risks into your sourcing strategy. During the process, we will provide a report that clearly compares our research of your existing program to best practices in the marketplace, giving you the leverage you need to execute profitable changes in your organization.
Source One will assist in identifying and improving the qualitative and quantitative aspects of your shipping profile, including:
- Lead times,
- Unique service requirements,
- Reporting requirements,
- System integration,
- Payment requirements/process,
- Intermodal/Ocean freight, and
- Dimensional and weight issues.
Factors unique to freight that need to be examined include:
- Lane volumes and shipment frequency,
- Lane compatibility for possible dedicated or mode shift scenarios,
- Backhaul potential,
- Continuous move potential,
- Equipment requirements for existing and potential equipment shift.
Source One does not end the process when the contract is signed.
Instead, we continue to be an active part of the implementation process to ensure new procedures are implemented both by your suppliers and internal staff.
