Small Parcel Spend Management

Capture Big Savings on Your Small Parcel Spend

Small parcel shipping is a critical component of the transportation mix for a growing number of organizations. While many companies take aggressive measures to manage their truckload and LTL shipping costs, small parcel costs often escape closer scrutiny, especially for small- to mid-sized businesses.

If your organization has not recently conducted a thorough audit of your small parcel spend or had a trained expert negotiate rates with your small parcel carriers, chances are you are leaving real money on the table.

With only a few hours of commitment from your organization, AFN can help you capture these savings and put them back where they belong: your bottom line.

Parcel Carrier Audit

Surprisingly, as much as 5% of the packages you ship may be eligible for refunds from the major parcel carriers. AFN uses proprietary software to scan your small parcel invoices across 35 different audit points to identify late deliveries, billing errors, changes of address, and other erroneous charges. We turn those errors into refunds that add up to real savings for you.
