ProShip's Carrier Diversification Efforts
ProShip has continued its effort to provide exceptional FedEx service, and our philosophy on building unique shipping carrier profiles and promoting carrier diversification has been no secret. Many who are currently utilizing single-carrier strategies, or national carriers only, are grappling with a variety of pain points (think late deliveries, lack of delivery options, and high shipping costs), not to mention the risk of failing their customers.
ProShip has taken a strong stance that carrier diversification is a benefit to nearly every brand shipping thousands, if not tens of thousands of packages (or more!). The key is finding the right mix of carriers which match your distinct shipping profile. The ideal balance or mix of carriers involves a thorough understanding of what it will take to keep your discount (minimum spend) and how much you can ship (maximum volume threshold).
The Technology That Makes Carrier Diversification Possible
A brand that utilizes a carrier diversification strategy will only have the flexibility to easily switch between carriers as needed if they are utilizing a multi-carrier shipping software solution. This shipping solution utilizes advanced functionality control mechanisms, like rate shop groups and business rules, to automate and simplify timely decision-making processes within your supply chain. In today’s shipping environment of inflation and rising costs, a flexible strategy that allows brands to quickly find the most cost-effective rates that still meet delivery expectations is easily one of the most compelling arguments for embracing carrier diversification.
With customer delivery expectations evolving, the Customer Experience (CX) has never been more important. A diversified carrier strategy will offer you a variety of carriers and services to meet the needs of customers now and what customers will want in the future.
