Your transport and logistics budget must be controlled so as not to affect the profitability of your goods shipments. However, beyond your carrier’s rate, other criteria can influence your company’s competitiveness. We explain in detail these indicators to be taken into account.

You no longer have to wait for the carrier to call you to inform you of a possible problem, so you can be more reactive in your customer relationship. In this sense, the carrier plays a crucial role in the satisfaction and loyalty of your customers.
