SUPPLY CHAIN SAVINGS

Vendor Management
SSI consultants can help shippers design and implement routing guides to streamline operations, reduce costs, and enhance trade-partner relationships. Managing outbound freight expense is often a focus of logistics pros. SSI complements your in-house expertise by providing meaningful insights and strategies to reduce inbound freight costs.

DIM Factor Mitigation
The impact of dimensional weight (DIM) pricing can dramatically affect your inbound and outbound shipping expenses. Dimensional weight is calculated when the size, or volume, of a package is used to determine the weight at which it is priced. SSI can help you review and update best-practice packaging processes.

Transportation Mode Optimization
SSI can analyze what you ship, and how you ship it, to determine the most appropriate transportation modes so products arrive at their destination when needed. Best of all, our consultants can set up a tracking program to monitor transportation cost savings.

GRI Analysis
SSI can assist with your understanding of your carrier’s general rate increase and how it impacts your shipping costs. We’ll work with you to provide the necessary metrics to understand the GRI impact on your shipping cost and bottom line.

The SSI team will help you optimize shipping terms and conditions and shipper-agreement documentation so your freight contracts maximize your operation’s savings.

Custom freight audit solutions

Leaders across all industries are recognizing that manually performing freight-bill audits is a tedious, time-consuming drain of internal resources. A growing number of these leaders are turning to SSI, a time-proven provider of specialized freight audit and freight payment software solutions.

SSI customers receive an exacting, customized and automated audit process, supported by human intelligence. SSI audits 100% of your global freight carrier bills. Others spot-check invoices or use an imprecise one-size-fits-all audit process.

Our software verifies and authenticates accurate data and red flags duplicate charges and exceptions which deviate from client-carrier contracts and agreed-upon parameters. The process improves your profitability day-after-day, as SSI identifies substantial savings on your behalf.

Transparent freight payment solutions

SSI also unshackles your team from the tedious work of coordinating global carrier payments. Our fast, secure process only pays for the actual allowable carrier charges and enables you to track every dollar spent.

Few providers match SSI’s level of transparency, which ensures your funds are never co-mingled or used for any purpose other than paying freight invoices. By intelligently outsourcing freight-audit and freight-payment processes to SSI, our customers enhance their productivity and maximize their profitability as they focus on what they do best.

Because we individually tailor our software and service solutions to dovetail with your specified business needs, the SSI approach truly is different by design. While results vary, some customers realize up to a 20-to-1 return on investment.
