How Do We Lower Your Shipping Costs?
Are you convinced that you are receiving best-in-class rates on your carrier contracts? The truth is, 9 out of 10 volume shippers are overspending. They just don’t know it yet because there are so many constantly changing factors. In addition, the process of freight negotiation is often one-sided, with carriers having most – if not all – of the leverage.
At Shipware, our parcel shipping consulting team is made up of former carrier executives with over 200 collective years of pricing and supply chain experience. We know the industry better than anyone, and we want to help you save money on your shipping costs. Our consulting service has clients in industries such as technology, manufacturing, financial services, health, retail, ecommerce, automotive and consumer products.
The process is simple, just send us your current contracts and we will conduct a full freight spend analysis that will help you assess the costs of your logistics and supply chain. There are many areas of opportunity, such as price floors, that will be reviewed to optimize cost reduction. After we identify areas for improvement, our experts will fully prepare you to master the art of parcel shipping optimization by providing you with everything you need to know to negotiate with UPS, FedEx, or any other LTL carrier you may use. You will be equipped with the expertise to locate and negotiate contracts as well as soft skills like building a strong reputation with carriers, which can improve agreements and long-term business.
When you partner with Shipware, you can save up to 30% on your annual shipping costs. There is no need to change carriers and no disruption to your current operations. Just guaranteed savings when using our advisory services and solutions.

What we learned after working with Shipware is that the confidentiality provision in carrier pricing agreements is a well thought-out strategy to prevent shippers from understanding the rates and terms of other shippers since we can’t disclose rates. The Shipware process allowed us to better understand the discounts and concessions we were entitled to without any breach in terms with our delivery partners.VP of Supply Chain, Automotive, Detroit MI
