Identifying and Reducing Hidden Inbound Transportation Costs

Many manufacturers, wholesalers and distribution companies are paying too much for their inbound shipments. The additional costs are buried in the price of the goods being shipped. This webinar by Joe Lynch explains that companies need to pay for the cost of shipping directly to realize the cost savings. The inbound shipment costs are typically for truckload, less than truckload (LTL) and small package transportation.

When receiving inbound goods from their suppliers, many companies let their suppliers purchase and then pass on the cost of transporting those goods. Using this approach, purchasing does not have to get involved with the purchase of inbound transportation. Letting suppliers select and pay for inbound freight means the costs are hidden from purchasing - This is a big mistake!

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Save money on inbound transportation (up to 5%) by unbundling transportation costs from purchased inbound goods
  • Leverage the transportation spending across the entire supply chain
  • Manage inbound shipments more effectively and efficiently using transportation management systems
  • Utilize 3rd logistics providers to capture hidden transportation costs
  • Develop and use key performance indicators for inbound logistics

Benefits of the session:

  • Understand the inbound transportation savings opportunity
  • Be able to quickly uncover the inbound transportation savings
  • Get a step by step plan for capturing the extra money spent on inbound transportation
  • Learn a process for managing inbound transportation providers using objective measurements

Who should attend

People in finance, purchasing and operations who work in the manufacturing, distribution and wholesale businesses that receive inbound shipments from their suppliers.
