Save on InBound Freight

Customodal works with a wide variety of manufacturing companies, helping them to save on inbound freight. Inbound freight refers to the raw products and materials coming into a business from a supplier or vendor. 

If you are a manufacturing company, you likely spend a significant portion of your budget on shipping costs. If you are a manufacturing company looking to save on shipping costs, there are a few different approaches you can take. Many companies find success hiring a 3PL, for example.

Shipping rates are unlikely to go down any time soon. To save on inbound freight, keep in mind that shipping freight has operational costs for them and as those costs go up, they need to increase the rates that they charge us in order to maintain their profitability.

3PL companies are in the business of delivering customized shipping solutions to their customers and clients. This can mean anything from a dedicated account manager who acts as a liaison for your company’s shipping department to a dedicated service offering that you design together. Depending on the precise nature of your shipping needs, the type of 3PL service you need will differ. 

Customodal’s EXACT Program enables companies to gain near complete control of all inbound with minimal training. The ability to control the most favorable cost/route/time options, gain near real-time tracking, audit past shipments, limit carrier options—all with the click of a mouse—enables purchasing departments to look more deeply than ever into their inbound costs.
