  • 3. Inbound Shipping Facts • Inbound freight accounts for between 40-80% of total freight spend and 4-6% of total sales for most companies • Additionally, vendors often add 2-10% in shipping charges to the value of purchased merchandise • Inbound-controlled shipments can save companies 10% or more on their freight spend, while improving shipment visibility and on-time delivery performance
  • 4. Inbound Shipping Challenges • Lack of shipment visibility and knowing what’s in transit • Lack of control to specify the ideal mode, carrier and delivery schedule • Rising freight costs and limited resources to manage shipping activities
  • 5. 4 Steps To Control Your Inbound • Find a 3PL with inbound shipping expertise, like PartnerShip, to help you analyze your inbound for potential savings • Have your 3PL review a sample of purchase invoices to determine how much you are paying for inbound “shipping & handling” • Have your 3PL negotiate the best inbound shipping rates for your business • Create inbound routing instructions and have them sent to your key vendors
  • 6. Points to Consider • There is no such thing as free shipping … if your purchase invoice says “free freight” your vendor probably buried the cost into the product price • “Prepay & Add” is when your shipment is routed and freight is paid by your vendor and added to your purchase invoice • “Inbound Collect” is when your shipment is controlled by you and the freight charges are your own negotiated rates
