  2. 2. MAM Member BenefitFreight Savings ProgramHow It Works 1. We work with you in a collaborative and consultative manner. 2. With your current costs as a baseline, we perform an in-depth analysis of your transportation invoices and current methods. 3. Working with our carrier partners (which may be your current carriers), we develop a pricing structure that reduces direct costs and gives the option of utilizing multiple carriers, based on your service requirements. 4. Our rates are possible through a combination of industry relationships, experience and a proprietary rate structure. 5. Once the pricing is agreed upon, we publish the tariff in your company’s name and you continue to deal directly with your current carrier reps. Your company pays the carriers directly, free of any broker markup. 6. You receive weekly Excel reports on your shipments prepared by our freight analysts. Every bill is reviewed in detail to make sure billing is correct. 7. Our income is determined based on a percent of the savings realized. If we don’t save you money, we don’t get paid.Case Studies  IBT: Overall freight transportation expenses reduced by 56%. Freight collect program improved by over 78%.
