BirdDog’s Parcel Shipping Optimization service includes;
Parcel Program Design: BirdDog begins with your business strategy and develops a custom parcel program aligned to meet your key business objectives. We create industry specific solutions that deliver a competitive advantage by making recommendations on the modes, carriers, and services used. Examples include subsidized shipping analysis, DC site analysis, zone skipping, and comprehensive routing analysis.
Contract Optimization: Your parcel contracts need to be aligned with your short and long term parcel program initiatives in mind. BirdDog’s Professional Services team is a uniquely qualified group of industrial engineers with carrier corporate pricing experience that deliver win-win agreements focused on eliminating expenses for the carriers and delivering bottom-line results for you.
Audit and Payment: Through advanced technology and our team of audit specialists, we process millions of invoices at a detail level each week. Most shippers don’t have the resources to check each and every invoice for accuracy. Duplicate invoices, misapplied accessorials, incorrect rates; these are just a few of the budget sapping errors that BirdDog finds and corrects.
Analytics: BirdDog OnDemand — our proprietary technology platform — supplies 24/7 access to key metric reports, custom dashboards, and the ability to create your own customizable reports. These reports include in-depth analyses of your shipping activities with easy-to-understand tables and charts. We help you save time and make informed decisions.
