Transportation contracts are cumbersome and difficult to compare because the price- and delivery time tables are provided in many different formats. Various spreadsheets are stored somewhere on a network drive and only a few employees have access to the information. This is still common practice in many companies even though transportation costs is a major cost contributor.
The selection of the best transportation company for a specific shipment (A specific route and load) is a static process that is reviewed a couple times a year at best. Goods are moving but transportation costs are not optimized when delivery time requirements and shipping profiles are changing. The process is static, not dynamic and optimized for the particular shipment. This is in many cases due to the lack of transportation contract transparency. Information is not easily available in an easy to use format for the people who are actually ordering the transportation.
