Freight Rate Negotiations for all Transportation Modes

Parcel Carrier Audit The key to saving money in freight rate negotiations is to effectively analyze and benchmark the numerous rate offerings available. At ICC, we have the in-house expertise to ensure that our clients receive the best rate possible. Period!

Negotiating the Best Price/Service and the Best Terms

We leverage our extensive knowledge of freight rate structures, and the diversity of our cross-industry client base, to deliver real cost savings for our clients. As an independent resource, we skillfully collect our clients' logistics information and shipping characteristics, and compare this data to baseline industry standards. We then summarize and provide this information to our clients' existing service providers, with a focused objective in mind: to negotiate the best price/service and the best terms.

ICC will also analyze alternative options and introduce potential new service providers to our clients. Our criteria? That these options offer real cost saving advantages, improved efficiencies and friendlier terms.

Building Strong Service Provider Relationships

While ICC works on behalf of its clients to obtain the best price, the best terms, and the best service possible, we understand that building strong relationships with transportation and logistics service providers is an important part of doing business.

We go to bat for our clients to make sure they're represented by ethical, informed, and focused experts at the rate negotiating table.

Post-Negotiation Support to Ensure Compliance

Our negotiation efforts don't stop, however, after we've negotiated the best rates, service, and the most favorable terms. At ICC, our invoice auditing technology ensures that service providers are in compliance with contractual terms and conditions.
