Parcel Margin Analysis 

Can you say with certainty that your parcel shipment costs are tied to the actual carrier invoice when you charge your customers? Are DIMs and surcharges hidden from your pricing model?

Our Impact Analytics can tie into Parcel BI, auditing your Manifest (expected costs) to your parcel bill (actual cost). it also ties in your customer invoices (Billed Cost) to make sure you are recouping your costs accurately. 

With Parcel BI, you can evaluate the actual charge to the transaction and make sure you are billing properly. Hidden fees are not uncommon with UPS and FedEx and when you account for the actual spend vs. the assumed, you stop leaking costs.

Designed to quickly impact your business by delivering your parcel data in a way you’ve never seen before. This is a BI Solution, not just a fee recovery solution.

One Source of Truth

Companies struggle to connect their actual parcel costs to their assumed cost of parcel. With Parcel BI, you can address this problem once and for all. What is your parcel spend really costing you? What is the impact of shipping discounts on your profitability? Does the invoice to the customer reflect the actual cost? Parcel BI gets you the answers in 3-5 clicks.
