One of the biggest problems shippers experience today is quantifying what they are fully getting with their parcel and express services. In 2023, the general rate increases had the highest dynamics on record and included numerous hidden accessorial charges aimed at enhancing their profitability. There are so many moving pieces that some shippers might not realize the dynamics of all the intricacies of a parcel or express contract.

Introducing Our Parcel & Express Consulting Services

We are thrilled to announce that Scarbrough Consulting’s Supply Chain Services Division now offers Parcel & Express Consulting Services as part of our portfolio. We will not only assess your contracts and the benefits you are receiving but also explore ways to enhance your pricing. Whether you’re a small shipper or a large shipper, we have the industry expertise and the business acumen to effectively deal with the two largest industry giants. We want to ensure that you’re getting the best quality contract with the best terms of engagement.

What Makes Our Services Unique

One of the things that we’re doing differently is we now have the tools that enable us to accurately determine the amount of savings we can provide. If you’re a smaller shipper, we offer enrollment into our GPO Program, which grants you access to pricing comparable to that of a larger shipper in the market. In addition to having the ability to negotiate with FedEx and UPS, we will also be able to arm your customer service department, your sales department, and your operations department by zone with your actual cost per piece and achieve this through a heat map. This way you can truly accrue for transportation charges, unlike previously when it was based on an estimated guess correlating to a specific general rate increase.

Our goal is to provide you with the best solution possible to combat these ever-changing industry challenges. If you would like to learn more about our Parcel & Express Consulting Services, please contact our team and we will help guide you through the process.
