How Does the Margin Analysis Help Parcel Shippers?

The short answer is that it will provide major savings on shipping costs AND the hours and resources spent auditing freight costs billed to customers. This tool takes your sales and manifest (or billed shipping cost) and connects it with the true cost of shipping.

  • Easily identify orders that lose money due to delivery costs to expose major savings
  • See the difference between anticipated delivery cost compared with true delivery cost
  • Data visualizations make it easy to digest and understand data from a high-level down to the detail
  • Slice and dice the data by customer or by product to get the answers you need
