Have you ever conducted a shipping cost analysis to determine if you are missing out on potential savings?
Your business thrives on your products being delivered to your client locations in a timely manner. More importantly, sample viability depends on the shipments promptly returning to your lab. This reliance on carrier services to deliver your products can make up a large portion of your expenses, and has a substantial impact on your bottom line.
Over the past decade, FedEx and UPS ground rates and air rates have increased substantially. This means that laboratories are looking for additional areas to cut costs in ways that do not impact your client’s quality of service.
How well do you really know your carrier bill?
• Are you familiar with your minimums?
• Are you tracking and auditing your bill for missed pick-ups, deliveries, or lost packages?

• Are you responding to logistics issues in a proactive or reactive way?
