BI (or Business intelligence): a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help executives, managers and other business leaders make informed business decisions. Parcel BI™ is a suite of business intelligence solutions and services that empowers shippers to manage parcel spend and the impact it has on margin on all levels.
Parcel BI™ is unlike any Parcel Analytics solution on the market today. You must experience the suite to appreciate the full value it brings. We automatically take impossible amounts of parcel carrier data, break it down, make it easy to understand, and use to take action and control costs. Stop wasting hours pouring over your carrier invoices, trying to make sense of the endless pages and lines of data. Let Parcel BI™ do the dirty work of gathering and transforming your parcel data into powerful reports, so you can focus on the insights it provides and take action to lower costs. What Parcel BI™ does for shippers:
Parcel BI™ automatically gathers parcel bills from the major carriers (UPS®, FedEx®, GSO®, Endicia®, Loomis®, Purolator®, OnTrac®, etc.) and imports them into our data model. From there, we use powerful visualizations to transform the data into interactive reports that give you high-level analysis withe the ability to drill down to the package level to completely understand your bill and identify opportunities to reduce costs and improve processes.
Parcel BI™ can also help you get money back from the carriers on incorrect charges, billing errors, and other eligible transactions. Our ability to audit your invoices helps provide added ROI for out tools, but it is not the core focus. There are freight and Parcel consultants that simply want a piece of your spend. Our priority is to empower you and help you find the process improvements that can help you reduce costs by educating you and connecting you with your data.
Parcel BI™ automatically collects and consolidates your real data from carrier bills & invoices. We keep your records for up to 3 years to show trends and savings over that period for long-term success. And with automation & integration, you no longer need to cut and paste data for analysis.
Parcel BI™ exposes the data from a complete view & allows you to drill down from the big picture to view by customer, account, carrier, accessorial fee, zone, and more. All it takes is a few clicks to filter your data and get a deeper analysis, making it easier and faster for you to make decisions.
Parcel Billing Analytics empowers you to see charges, methods, business practices, & gaps that are costing you unnecessary dollars. Within seconds, Parcel BI™ reveals what is costing you the most & you can identify the process adjustments needed to reduce your overhead.
Avoid the traps of carrier contracts and rate increases by exposing everything in your contract and comparing it to others. You can see the impact of rate increases based on your shipping patterns and historical volumes to negotiate the incentives that will save you the most.
Stop the bleeding that lost revenue and higher shipping costs have when it should be passed to the receiver. You can compare the cost you assumed at the time of shipping to the cost you actually incurred for a shipment and the charge you invoiced the customer.
Easily track savings by spotting trending costs & measuring reductions, making sure that your efforts and new contracts are producing quantifiable results. Monitor your average costs and calculate the impact new contracts and rates can have or did have on your spend.
Opportunities are found when you can easily drill down into data. Our reports allow you to slice & dice the data to uncover where the most impact can be made. You can instantly filter by Carrier, Account, Service, Inbound / Outbound, Receiver, and more.

We have used third party auditors in the past, but the relationship always felt tainted. Since they were compensated by giving them a portion of our refunds, there was no incentive to help us fix the core issues. Parcel BI is about improving us, not feeding off of us. It's a true partnership.
-Ric B., President
Your last few updates have been incredible! The advanced filtering in particular has been tremendously helpful. I still can't believe how easy it is, this saves me so much time.
-John H. - VP -Supply Chain
I had built something like this in house, but really, it was nothing like this. This is easy, automated, and simply amazing. Such a time saver.
Our reports were okay for me, but slow and manual. I was writing queries all the time.
And the higher-ups did not 'get it' until they saw your visuals. Now they look at the report and realize what needs to be done. I’d love to be an endorsement for you.

Thank You! I love data, and this tool is just so stinking awesome!
