Have you ever stared at your shipping invoices and felt completely lost? The shipping industry has operated by overwhelming you with information. We know because we came from the carrier side and knew something had to be done. From pages-long invoices to complicated contracts, there’s so much data to parse that it takes a team of computer scientists to take any meaningful action.

So we did exactly that.

We’ve put together that team of computer and data scientists, and we’ve talked to hundreds of shippers like you.  We pulled out the six metrics that you told us are most important to managing your shipping contracts and managing costs. 

We call these your Shipping VitalFactors™.

What Are Your Shipping VitalFactors?

  1. Service Spend: The total amount you spend on shipping.
  2. Surcharge Spend: The total amount spent on surcharges.
  3. Average Cost Per Shipment: Your actual cost per shipment, including all weight/zone considerations and surcharges.
  4. Weight: We break this down into two categories:
    1. Average weight: The average billed weight of your packages.
    2. % hitting DIM weight: The percentage of packages billed at their DIM weight.
  5. Minimums: The percentage of shipments that hit the carrier’s established minimum charges.
  6. Average Shipping Zone: Which shipping zone(s) you ship to most.
