Ways Your Freight Broker Reduces Transportation Cost

truck transporting

Plenty of Australian businesses choose freight brokers to handle their cargo, not just because it is a lot easier, but because freight brokers are incredible when it comes to reducing transportation cost. Freight brokers are always looking for new and innovative ways to optimise everyone’s networks so businesses can enjoy the lowest prices, safest cargo solutions, and great functionality from their services. At Freight Broker Australia, our transportation experts are focused on keeping the cost of transportation as low as possible so your business can keep up with distribution costs. Here are seven ways we help reduce transportation costs on your cargo.

Freight Broker Analysis for Consolidation

Load consolidation is one of the best ways to reduce transportation costs. We pair your load with other businesses and ship the items together, which enables us to split your bill. For this method we will do an in-depth analysis of your freight. We need information such as your absolute latest acceptable delivery date, and critical pickup date. By pairing loads, we reduce transportation costs dramatically without inconveniencing our customers.

Mode Shifting

Some means of transportation are a lot more expensive than others. Air transportation, for example, is a lot quicker but costs considerably higher than sending a shipment by sea or by truckload. Another good example is the load capacity of your shipments. It is much more affordable to transport 40 pallets of goods infrequently than it is to ship 20 pallets of loads more frequently. At Freight Broker Australia, we analyses your load size and requirements and choose the best mode of transportation to get your products to their destination on time and on budget.

No Need for an Internal Transportation Department

Creating your own internal transportation department is costly. You need to hire employees to handle the arrangements, you need an office space, office equipment, and you need delivery equipment in order to manage the transportation yourself. Freight brokers take care of all of these tasks for you and the cost of getting goods transported is a lot cheaper compared to the vehicle payment, fuel, staff salary, and office rent of an internal transportation department.

A Widespread Network is Already in Place

We have a widespread network that stretches throughout Australia. This gives business owners extensive opportunities to ship their goods anywhere and to maximize truckloads without having to invest additional capital and time in expanding networks.

Cost Avoidance

Freight brokers have all the best cost avoidance solutions in place to ensure that transported goods reach their destination as safely as possible. The chances of losing a shipment are significantly lower. At Freight Broker Australia, all of our shipments can be fully insured if you choose.

Time and Workforce Saving

Arranging and keeping track of shipments takes a lot of time. There are so many rules, regulations documentation, and more that need to be perfected in order to get your goods safely transported. When you use a skilled freight broker, all of these tasks are taken care of for you. There is no need to spend extra time or to employ additional employees to handle these tough jobs for you.

Shipment Advice

We can also give you the best advice on packaging methods, shipping modes, shipment dates, and shipment methods that will help you save a lot of money on transportation in the long-run. Good advice is vital for keeping you from spending more than you need on your transportation. If you want to start saving money on transportation costs, then start using Freight Broker Australia.
