LTL Expert in partnership with F. Curtis Barry & Company hosted another great webinar. fsa_logo

Inbound freight management impacts gross margin, purchasing staff productivity, inventory control, receipt processing and fulfillment operations.  Direct-to-consumer retailers spend an average of 2% – 4% of gross sales on vendor inbound freight; ranking it among the top eight operational expenses.

A consortium is an association of two or more individuals, companies, or organizations with the objective of participating in a common activity or pooling their resources for achieving a common goal. Many small to mid-sized companies are finding that there is power in numbers. Your company may qualify to join special industry consortiums designed to provide freight savings and other value-added services.
