Are you one of those manufacturers, wholesalers or distributors who is paying too much towards inbound shipment? Did you know that this is the reason behind increase in inbound products because the additional costs are buried in the price before the goods are shipped?
If you want to practice and follow cost savings, as a company, you need to pay the cost of shipping directly. This is because the cost of inbound shipping is typically divided according to truckload, less than truckload and small package transportation. When you receive inbound goods from your suppliers, you may let your suppliers purchase and then pass on the transportation cost of those products. This approach always helps as you as a purchaser don’t have to invest your time and money in the inbound transportation purchase in that condition. If your suppliers are trusted in paying for inbound freight, the costs will be hidden from packaging and that, is a BIG mistake!
