Modal Optimization

Improve Service Times & Lower Your Shipping Costs

Shipware’s experienced team will model your current spending against a variety of alternate Modal Optimization strategies to provide you with the most desirable carrier and service offerings.

How Can Shipware’s Modal Optimization Help Your Business?

Drive Savings & Improve Transit Times


The tactical movement of selected freight between service types and carriers can drive savings and – with some strategies – improve transit times for both inbound and outbound packages. Shipware can present a variety of solutions for our clients to consider based upon modeled analytics.

Develop Winning Strategies


There are many opportunities to move some classes of freight from one service to another and/or between carriers to drive incremental savings. Examples include upgrading selected Ground freight to a USPS Air product, moving Ground to a Deferred Ground option, or the same service levels between carriers for a portion of the freight spend.

Overcome Carrier-Imposed Challenges


Any time there is a dilution of freight from the primary carrier, there can be a detrimental impact to the volume bonuses that carriers build into their contracts. It is not an accident that UPS® and FedEx® include these bonuses — it is to discourage the use of regional carriers and the USPS.

With Shipware, You Can Find A Balanced Solution


By carefully modeling your spend against potential savings, while helping to right-size those “Earned Discount” or “Portfolio Tier” incentives, it is possible to maximize your savings while maintaining the desired discount structure.

Mike B.Owner, Logistics Industry, Houston, TX

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.
