Misconceptions about parcel contract negotiation result in millions being left on the table.
There are plenty of people out there who claim they can save you money on your carrier agreements. And yes, anyone can find you 4 to 5% savings in a parcel audit and then walk away.
At TransImpact, we not only find significantly more savings than anyone else, but we remain with you throughout the three year contracts. You’ll receive weekly report cards from our parcel management software validating those savings. As your shipping characteristics or behavior changes (which they inevitably will), we’ll catch it and adjust accordingly. You have a team of parcel experts sifting through your data looking for ways to always save you money and mitigate costs.
Why are we the best in
It’s that combination of market expertise and industry-leading technology. We know where the profit line is for the carriers. We know market appropriate rates. We anticipate what the next move in negotiations will be. We understand where the hidden charges could be ferreted away. And we bring all that knowledge to work for you, with very little effort on your part.
Give us four hours of your time over the six to eight week negotiation period, and we’ll significantly lower your parcel costs for three years.
During that three years, we’ll continue to optimize your rates as we watch your company’s shipping habits, market fluctuations, peak season surcharges, GRI implications, and any changes in your overall parcel spend. So you’ll continue to have market appropriate rate reductions.

Parcel Contract Negotiation Q & A
If you don’t have 3-4 hours during a short 6-8 week period to substantially save money, then we’re not the parcel advisory company for you. Invest less than half a day, and we not only bring you guaranteed savings, but we’ll be saving you hours and hours in the long run. You stay focused on other things on your plate, and let us work in the background.
Are you going with the experts? Are you satisfied with average savings? Then don’t call us. If you want the maximum savings on Planet Earth, then call us,(we make no claims on other planets). We know where the profit line is for the carriers. And it’s our job to drive them to the brink of profitability.
Anyone can find you 4 to 5% savings. We will find better savings than anyone else and we guarantee it, in writing, to the tenth of a percent. You only pay us a percentage of the savings we generate. It’s easy to see there is an incentive for us to maximize your cost reduction.
Absolutely not. We’ll run your current carrier data through our proprietary software and see where - and if - we can save you money. In our history, we’ve found 85% of companies are leaving money on the table. And we only make money if you save money.
Nope. If we don’t find savings, then congrats! You’re receiving market appropriate rates and we can’t help you. At no charge to you, you’ve verified that you’re receiving maximum savings on your FedEx contract and UPS contract.
Your agreement can be renegotiated at any time. Our average customer is 13 months into a 36-month term when they hire us. Even if your agreement contains an early termination or buyout clause, we can still leverage your volume to achieve maximum cost reduction.
We understand the logic. Negotiate yourself, cut out the middle man, keep all the savings. But carrier contracts are loaded with language designed to divert your attention and dilute your savings. You hire an accountant to do your taxes. Let us negotiate your agreement. If you start with a bad carrier agreement, the ongoing savings and opportunities are severely limited. And with our ongoing optimization over your three year contract, our parcel analytics ensure you have market appropriate rates throughout the terms of your agreements. If you don’t, we’ll head back to the negotiating table.
Don’t let your carrier strong-arm you into taking what they give you. You need a coach to help your team from the sidelines to ensure your interests are protected while your relationship is preserved. There's nothing wrong with having an expert on your side.
Sure you can. You own your shipping data showing what UPS discounts and FedEx discounts you are receiving. There’s a big misconception when it comes to data’s inherent value. Alone, it’s worthless, but when your FedEx contract and UPS contract are studied by a trained eye and compared with relevant information, it can paint a vivid picture.Going forward, using a technology tool like Parcel Spend Intelligence provides ongoing data insights and actionable insights, digging deep into auditing your ongoing FedEx and UPS invoices.
