Insights into the market price trends

What are the strategies to adopt to optimize procurement spend in this market?

Negotiate on surcharges that have a higher impact on TCO

Utilization of these services entails several surcharges such as delivery area surcharge and fuel surcharge that can increase buyers’ TCO. Buyers are advised to ask their service providers to list all the surcharges applicable for their services along with their weightage on the overall price during the contract negotiation phase. This will aid buyers to identify surcharges that have the highest impact on prices and ask for waivers or discounts to reduce the ultimate costs for services procured.

Implement zone skipping

Zone skipping is a supply chain technique where buyers consolidate shipments that are later shipped in LTL or FTL modes, depending on volumes, directly to the destination. Parcel carrier charges are based on distance and the number of zones they travel through. Shipments that do not have zone skipping have to travel through multiple zones that lie between their origin and destination. Zone skipping helps to avoid the high cost of multi-zone movements by directly sending shipments to their respective destinations.
