Alexandretta reduces your global shipping costs with negotiation
and audit services.
Parcel Negotiation: Our core service is global parcel negotiation. We focus on not only U.S. and Canada-based savings, but EMEA and APAC-based savings as well, inclusive of savings available via local and regional EMEA/APAC carriers and contracts. With over 20 years of experience on both sides of the table, our Fortune 100 clients often see a 3%-10% in measurable cost reduction, with smaller parcel shippers typically achieving 10%-20% savings.
Audit & Recovery Services: Ongoing audit of parcel invoices (aka freight bill audit or Audit & Recovery services) typically reveals an additional 1%-3% for late delivery refunds and an additional 7%, on average, for manifest errors, shipment rating errors, address corrections and other recoverable charges. Once we’ve begun the freight audit, our parcel auditing reporting options have uncovered savings opportunities up to the 20%+ range. And freight audit savings are in addition to savings achieved via parcel negotiations.
Data Analytics: If a picture is worth 1000 words, then data analytics is worth 10,000. Data drives it all: savings assessments, carrier selection, mode and network optimization. We analyze your parcel auditing data, your freight bill — whether FedEx®, UPS®, or other carriers — and other data to recommend shipping optimization as well as angles for parcel negotiation.
LTL, Ocean & Air Freight Negotiations: Our experts review and uncover cost reduction and cost avoidance opportunities, which can increase savings and profits similar to what we see in our parcel negotiations.
