RFQ / RFP Logistics Procurement
Going out to bid and asking carriers/service providers for rates and service is very time-consuming. Negotiating the best cost requires knowing the economics of the marketplace, carrier capacity, and the supply-demand drivers. This information requires trend visibility and good relationships with logistics service providers.
Most companies generally stay with one or two service providers until something major goes wrong. These companies usually don’t get the best cost and service. In today’s economic environment, staying competitive is directly related to your freight cost and service. Freight Team takes the hassle out of Logistics Bid Procurement. We work with industry veterans and software technology companies who know how to analyze the logistics marketplace and provide your company with the ‘Big Data’ visibility required to negotiate cost savings and the best service to stay competitive and profitable.

Security and Customs Compliance
Over the last 10 years regulatory security compliance has become a required component of logistics and supply chain management. Most importers and exporters have relied on logistics service providers and customs brokers to take care of the security and customs compliance reporting processes.
The security and customs compliance responsibility is changing to the importer – exporter liability level. Now, exporters and importers are becoming directly responsible to make sure their company is in full compliance to security requirement such as 10+2 Importer Security Filing Program, CBP, and Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) compliance. Compliance failures mean huge penalties for exporters and importers. Compliance Programs will dramatically change how global shippers manage their supply chain logistics. Does your company have a compliance plan in place? Are you sure you have the best logistics management software to keep your company in compliance? Learn more about the Importer Security Filing
