Companies spend millions of shillings in international freight services. In fact, it’s the fastest growing service sector in world trade. However, very few companies are aware of how much they spend on transport services, or whether they are getting value for money. Consequently, freight costs are a very large and relatively untouched overhead, where substantial savings can be achieved.
How can we help?
Our freight audits offer an informed, objective and impartial analysis of a client’s freight forwarding arrangements. They concentrate on evaluating whether a company is obtaining value for money. We would advise the extent to which a forwarder sub-contracts a client freight business; whether a client’s goods are consolidated; which routings, airlines and shipping lines are used; whether the freight rates are competitive in relation to the service levels; and whether the ancillary charges are reasonable.
A client could use the findings of a freight audit as a comfort check, or as a bargaining tool to obtain an improved deal on rates and service levels from current or future suppliers of freight services.
Our proven freight tender technology has resulted in improved services levels and savings.
