Measuring the Impact of Parcel Minimums


Parcel BI was created to help businesses keep track of their parcel data so that they can make efforts to save money on the parcel spend. In our last video, we discussed our incentive analysis report and the importance of being connected to your parcel data. Another important part of tracking your parcel spend is with minimums. 

What are Minimums?

A minimum is the smallest charge you would receive for a package regardless of your discount, essentially the bottom floor price for a package. Even if you had a 100% discount on a package, you would still have to pay the minimum for that package. The minimum rate will vary depending on the service.

How Can Parcel BI Help Shippers?

With Parcel BI, you can quickly and easily expose the impact of minimums, what the percentage of packages that hit the minimum, and how much the costs you. You can also manipulate your minimum adjustment and instantly quantify the impact. This information is crucial when negotiating with carriers to help you reduce your parcel shipping spend!
