Supply Chain Tip of the Week: Cut freight costs by tracking key benchmarks with a freight management program

Freight costs can be measured and managed with the data analytics tools of a freight management program. To monitor ongoing performance, track such key metrics as shipping rates, shipping modes and handling fees.

Through mode optimization, a freight management program can identify ways to ship at a lower cost, without impacting delivery timing. Depending on where suppliers are located, ASCs could even receive supplies via ground shipping vs. priority overnight, at a fraction of the cost.
