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.
