LOGISTICS OUTSOURCING

Strategically negotiate with logistics service provider to get the best price and service level

Context

Most of the companies will perform tender process for the Logistics Service Provider (LSP) selection based on the cheapest price quotation.

Of course price matters when you negotiate LSP contracts. But what matters more is the understanding of what drives the pricing, and of what makes a service contract worth the rates you agree to pay.

To succeed in the negotiation, a thorough understanding and control of the value-added service provided by LSP is necessary.
