How Can I Save Money Through LTL Shipping?
You may not think that outsourcing to a third-party logistics company is the most cost-effective option for your business, but think again! Utilizing a logistics company for LTL shipping can actually not only save your company money, but also time and headaches as well! A big part of managing any business is finding opportunities to cut spending while still holding your company up to the highest standards when it comes to quality and service. Choosing to outsource your LTL shipping needs to a 3PL company is the practical solution when it comes to saving your business time and money.
LTL Experience and Expertise
Shipping partial loads can be a tough job for anyone to tackle. If you try to handle your LTL shipping yourself, rather than work with a 3PL company, you run the risks of delays, damages, and financial losses to your company due to inexperience. A logistics company can save you the time of tracking down all the best prices. The close relationship between a logistics solution provider and multiple carriers gives them a working advantage, saving you both time and money! At APF Global Logistics, we are your one call, one stop shop. We’ll work with you to find the best possible solution for your LTL shipment to stay within your budget.
Access to Resources and Flexibility
Finding your own carrier for your LTL shipment and negotiating with them can be a headache in itself. And if you have seasonal variations in your inventory, it can be difficult to find a carrier who will be flexible and able to scale transportation, labor, and space to meet your needs at different times of the year. A 3PL company will belong to a large network and have access to a variety of different carriers. Because they can negotiate volume discounts easily, your company will have access to benefits that you could never get on your own. When your inventory is low, scale down on your services, and when it’s at its peak, take full advantage of those resources with a 3PL provider!
