As we look forward to the year ahead, many businesses are mapping out improvements they can make to keep shipments moving while mitigating rate increases. Building up safety stock is one strategy some are using to lower shipping costs and reduce stock outages (To avoid price hikes, businesses are finding other ways to protect their margins). On the heels of major rate increases from the big carriers (FedEx and UPS increase rates on average 5.9% from a consistent 4.9%.), more businesses are looking at regional options (Should FedEx and UPS care about the LaserShip+OnTrac Merger?). And with LTL at peak capacity, more shippers are reviewing their LTL contracts to secure capacity at the best price they can get (Transportation Rates Forecast: Q4 2021).
To make strategic shipping improvements we see many shippers needing easier access to all of their shipping data. Fortunately, the Pacejet 22.1 Release has a major feature update coming in January to our Bulk Export tool that helps shippers easily export shipping history for any date range or search criteria with easy data formatting to support analytics or carrier negotiation.
