Inbound Freight from Vendors: Uncovering the Costs Associated with Inbound Freight

Inbound Freight Costs

Did you know that you can control the costs of your inbound freight? Trust the experts at AFP Global Logistics!

Did you know you have the ability to control the costs of your inbound freight from vendors? When you order materials from your vendors, the common trend is to set up shipping without giving the customer any options.  Great, that makes shipping convenient and simple because you do not have to deal with making inbound shipping arrangements.  But what is this convenience actually costing you? Vendors use shipping and transportation as a profit center. They increase their freight costs and pass it along to you, the client, without you even realizing what the freight charge is.

Working With a Third Party Logistics Provider Reduces Shipping Costs

What if you had the ability to control the costs associated with your inbound freight with little effort?  As a total logistics solution provider, AFP Global Logistics partners with a 3PL provider allowing us to leverage their buying power on your behalf. Our 3PL partner works on a domestic level and leverages their volume. In turn, AFP Global Logistics passes the volume discounts on to small and medium-size businesses.
