Oct. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Fort Myers, Florida and Rotterdam, Netherlands October 22, 2012 – Global freight bill processor, auditor and supply chain cost reduction advisor Data2Logistics announces provision of shipping costs control data mining services, assisting companies experiencing growth through domestic and international demand for their offerings to realize cost savings associated with carrier selection, addressing inbound and outbound freight shipments in an expanding supply chain management environment. This ability is equipping companies to accommodate for this acceleration, with services to achieve operational flexibility and freight cost savings, as companies’ resources are stretched corresponding to demands accompanying shipping volume increases. Data2Logistics services are resulting in freight shipping cost savings averaging 5%-15% annually.

With Data2Logistics’ data mining and reporting, the discovery of timely, actionable information empowers companies to make the best shipping decisions based on carrier options that are available, relative to service levels and all cost components, providing significant savings. This function provides a deeper understanding of trends, opportunities, weaknesses and threats. Exploration of pertinent data, in any combination over any time period, enables the operational and financial view of an organization’s functional flow to simplify and save.

With these data mining tools, companies can create a report based on a radius from a ship point, or identify opportunities for service or modal shifts, providing insightful information about carrier usage by lane, volume, average cost per pound, shipment size and service type. Performance can be measured based on the number and dollar amount of billing errors in proportion to overall shipping expenditures, variances from trends in costs, volumes and accessorial charges, by mining a database that includes Paid Bills, Work in Process transactions and Bills Aging to Terms.

Data2Logistics’ services enhance organization’s logistics, supply chain, operations, finance and accounting staff, providing information needed to control costs for all modes of transportation for companies who ship products domestically and internationally via LTL, TL, parcel, overnight express, ocean, air and rail carriers. Having a full service operation in Rotterdam, Netherlands since 2004 enables Data2Logistics to support rapidly expand companies throughout North America, LATAM, EMEA and APAC, with staff attuned to local cultures and unique business environments.

Data2Logistics assists Global 1000, Fortune 1000 and SMB companies to reduce their shipping costs by providing an outsourced opportunity to efficiently process, audit, account code and pay their freight at a significantly lower cost than internal processes. Clients also benefit from the identification of more carrier overcharges than their internal systems can identify. The company provides actionable information to better manage and control transportation cost, and supports clients with their carrier bid preparation, benchmarking, proposal analysis and negotiation. As a single source of information for all modes of transportation on a global basis, Data2Logistics identifies and reports opportunities for savings and the reasons for variances in trends. Savings opportunities can be derived from modal shifts, consolidation of shipments, improved carrier utilization, and adjustment to shipment size, as well as monitoring accessorial costs. Reviewing over $15 billion worth of freight bills from thousands of carriers annually, the company provides a single-source solution results in savings averaging 5%-15% of product shipping expenditures per year.
