What The Freight?
Did you think we meant something else?
You know how much you are billed for freight, but
do you know how much your freight REALLY costs?
Vestra knows the transportation business, so we want to explain to you how this works because transparency is our mojo.
How freight is typically priced.
A typical transportation partner provides a competitive bid. The rate needs to be low enough to earn your business, but high enough to protect from increases in lane dynamics and fuel prices.
The broker then negotiates with carriers leveraging your freight for better prices. They pay the carrier as little as possible and keep the rest.
Why? Because that’s the way it has always been done. And of course, they want to keep that extra money. They did the work bargaining, right?
A new and better way that’s F.A.I.R.
Luckily for you, there’s a new way of doing business. Vestra Logistics uses a program we call (F.A.I.R.) Freight Aggregate Index Returns to obtain real freight cost. We understand equipment supply and demand and have developed a formula to provide a consistent outcome.
Vestra shows you the REAL cost to move your freight
We show you how to level out the pricing of your freight—directly adding money back to your bottom line. We work with carriers to negotiate a better rate, and we return those savings to directly to you.
Why? Because we want to become your preferred partner. Due to our size, expertise and technology, we have the ability to be nimble. This allows us to operate more efficiently and save your business money.
So, what’s in it for us?
If we are able to save you money on just some of your lanes, we know that you will allow us to handle more of your freight and hopefully share our transparent reputation with your friends and colleagues.
Just to bring this point home, here’s a recent example of a way one of our customer’s saved big with Vestra Logistics.
A true customer success
Vestra bid a year-round rate for multiple lanes for a customer (RFP) because that’s what most shipper want. In the 1st quarter the total freight spend was $275,230, after the F.A.I.R. program was applied, a savings of $19,667 is what the customer received. That is half of an employee for most companies in one quarter.
