LSS specializes in courier, LTL, Truckload and 3PL services within Canada and continues to meet the needs of the shipping public through strong and reliable distribution and logistics management consulting.
It all starts with accurate and informative benchmarking
For the past 24 years, LSS have provided considerable value to their clients by communicating current and comparative transportation rate structures based on volume, product type, modes and shipper/receiver requirements.
The rates you negotiate (without the wealth of their industry knowledge) may be too high. Without knowing what your competition is paying and what carriers are willing to settle for, you may not have the tools you need to get the best rates and service availableâ€¦especially in these market conditions.
Change for the sake of change? Never! LSS respects the trust and relationships you have built with your carriers, but at LSS they can determine:
- How rates compare with what your competition is paying
- The bottom line that carriers will accept for the privilege of being your carrier
- Current capacity requirements with key carriers and how to leverage this knowledge into better rates for you
- Carrier costs and how to use that knowledge to your advantage
- Proper negotiation, completion and implementation of carrier contracts that cover all the bases
LSS can save you money, time and increase efficiencies, while maintaining and improving service level performance.
