"Though capacity may be getting tighter and for many rates are going up, a shipper must align themselves with the right third party logistics company that has enough volume, market expertise and technology to help the shipper push back any kind of carrier rate increases," said Chuck Casey, President of The Freight Rate Company.
As freight costs continue to rise, shippers must seek out different ways to move their freight.
"A shipper must also be not only thinking about reducing their freight rates but also how to reduce their back office costs in order to get their product to market in an efficient manner. Reducing freight rates and pushing back rate increases is just the beginning to streamlining a shippers supply chain," Casey said.

The Freight Rate Company's team of experts will work closely with shippers to provide them the best rate possible which will be sure to save them money at a time of increasing freight costs.
