Eliminate missed opportunities
Inbound freight presents a big challenge to transportation performance. It is also where smart shippers can exert the most influence on many variables and gain a real advantage over their peers. If a company doesn’t effectively control inbound freight you are at the mercy of your vendor’s pricing, carrier choice and handling fees. Even if you dictate a freight carrier for your vendor to use, errors occur. Things like improper NMFTA freight class assignment or incorrect mode dependent on order size can result in significant cost increases. The best carrier for a shipment changes based on its characteristics, weight, accessory charges, or lane. Route guides are not the way to manage this complexity.
We can help standardize the management of your inbound freight. Our software optimizes and measures every part of your shipping game plan highlighting lost opportunties that affect your P&L.
“KDL has a unique understanding of the carrier world, and they know how to match freight with carriers to build long term relationships. KDL is always incredibly helpful and responsive, and I love that when I am in a bind the owners jump right in to help. I know I am not the biggest KDL customer, but I never feel that way.”
