As many businesses move to more ‘just in time’ ordering, we are seeing an increase in carton freight. To add to this, there has been an explosion of home deliveries since the Covid19 pandemic. Having the right carrier options available to service your varying consumer needs is vital. Carton order invoice values are often smaller therefore it has to have good tracking. Any margin can quickly be eroded if your team are spending hours on the phone chasing freight. Getting the right solution in place first is key. Then having the right tracking allows exceptions to be quickly identified, freeing up your team to focus on more value add activities.
Most Australian companies have a need for some form of air freight. Whether this be for regular small replenishments, urgent orders or next flight, there are a range of solutions to choose from. Air Freight is the most expensive part of the domestic freight therefore it is important it is used appropriately. Often airfreight is used in times of emergency so having the right carrier backed up by the right team at Freight People makes all of the difference. Part of the ongoing governance meeting is reviewing your mix of air vs road vs rail to ensure you are getting the right service / cost outcome.
Many regional carriers are often the on-forwarder for the major Australian Freight Companies. If you have decent volume into regional areas, it makes sense to include certain regional carriers into your solution. This is often relevant for places like Tasmania, Western Australia, Northern Territory and large regional centres like Toowoomba and Dubbo.
