Carrier Rate Negotiations Services

Carrier Rate Negotiations

 Negotiating with carriers to determine the contract rates for shipment can be a daunting task. While shipping is a vital part of your customer experience, it is most likely not your core business. A transportation procurement event is labor-intensive and requires advanced analytical and transportation procurement expertise. That is why you need a partner like Broussard Logistics to help you through this critical step in your supply. Every procurement event is unique and requires extensive planning, customized analysis and the management of an experience logistics practitioner.

Broussard has nearly four decades of expertise and the buying power that over 1,000 client companies and $1 billion of transportation purchasing power bring. Regardless of your negotiating skill, that kind of leverage is an invaluable tool to use as a starting point.

Because this is what we do for so many clients, Broussard has access to massive amounts of data and market information to utilize in negotiations that you do not have access to. We keep abreast of market changes, pricing shifts, and other factors that only a company in our unique position can tap into – and use on your behalf at the negotiating table.
