Is Unnecessary Early Delivery Costing You a Fortune?

Is your organization requesting or sending packages for early delivery? Is it needed? Did you know it costs $30 extra or more for early delivery?

The terms of early delivery are by a certain time, such as 8:00 or 8:30 a.m., but that also can mean earlier. Many early deliveries are not even delivered early because the receiver is not open. Too often an impatient receiver will request early delivery, meaning before noon, but the shipper will hear before 8:00 a.m.

Priority means by 10:30 a.m., and standard means by 3:00 p.m. those are more than often good enough.

What about inbound shipments? Are your suppliers shipping to you on your account number and checking off for early delivery?

It is easy to check a box for early delivery and it can be hard to see the impact on the bottom line. Parcel BI can help. With a few clicks you can see how often this charge is being applied, to which receivers, and sent by which senders.

You can easily drill into the detail and access the other information related to the shipment. This is the difference between reports and business intelligence. This is Parcel BI!
