At Freight Cost Solutions, we don’t ask transporters for rates, “Our cost models and their cost outcomes are used to inform the transporters of the price you are prepared to pay’. Our ability to state this to the transporters is underpinned by our customised software programs which “benchmark interstate and international freight rates.

Proprietary Processes and Disciplines

Annual Audit

We have the software and expertise to audit every individual connote by zone and postcode for cube, charge-weight, price and variables. Our audits are precise and can be provided on a monthly and annual basis.

Forecaster

When moving freight from a single distribution centre to multiple dispatch points, the cost can significantly change. We are able to provide you with a forecast price to match your new freight distribution.

Tender Document Process

Our well-crafted Tender Document Process covers metropolitan, intrastate and interstate freight. The tender document will cover your company’s overview, terms and conditions, key requirements and evaluation criteria.

International Tender Assist

We can supply you with the software tools and documentation to finalise international tenders in a professional and efficient manner. Our International Tender Assist is a streamlined process and our experts are here to help.

Freight Costs Program

Our Freight Costs Program will identify correct freight costs regardless of location. We can work with you to deliver a solution that outlines the cost of sending freight from each and every postcode nationally.

Rate Comparison Report

Freight Cost Solutions™ can compare multiple transport companies simultaneously for price competitiveness based on all the variables of your freight data profile.

Why We Do What We Do

We do what we do because transporters are well known for overcharging. They utilise many variables that effect price outcomes such as:

  • Individual Zone to Postcode files which vary by transporter, postcode and suburb.
  • Cubic conversion factors from standards such as 167, 250, 333 and 1000
  • Pricing via regular rate and fuel levy increases

As your freight specialist, we understand the cost and service variables that should be correctly applied to individual company freight profiles. Importantly, no one freight profile is the same.
