We can do that. ShippersEdge, the original web based now cloud hosted Software as a Service [SaaS] Transportation Management System can keep track of the difference between using lowest cost provider and actual freight carrier selected. By logging information, we can report the difference.
State of the art, shipping management software has been proven to save 8-20% on your freight spend due to always knowing your least cost provider. There may be reasons why you wouldn’t, transit time selection is just one of the many reasons, dock space for a spotted trailer could be another. ShippersEdge can enable a feature that identifies a reason for deviating from least cost routing. We can report back to you what the net effect of each reason is.
Does your TMS identify your shipping rates and store variance from deviating and not using the least cost routing? It should. If not, you should be talking to ShippersEdge. We get it. More information at www.shippersedge.com/info
