Acacia Logistical Solutions is a third party rate negotiations/contract management service provider, commonly known as a 3PL. We utilize the leverage available to obtain lower freight rates on behalf of clients, assist in carrier evaluation and selection, review current carriers, and identify new carriers that may offer lower costs and/or a higher level of service. We prepare bid packages for each carrier based on shipper-oriented contract or special agreement pricing schedules. Assessments and recommendations are tailored to meet the needs of the individual client.
What we do: Acacia Solutions levels the playing field for smaller businesses to make them more competitive. We will negotiate rates and charges for transportation and logistics services with your current service providers or, at your request, we will introduce new service providers who can enhance the services you currently receive and who will provide these services at lower costs than your company currently pays. How we do it: Your company will now become a “National Account.” Transportation companies have a standard rate which they offer to the general shipping public. These rates and charges are customized to the CARRIER’S need. They are continuously adjusted and go up every year at a rate of 5 – 6%. Carriers control the shipper’s costs. The secret of the industry is that 40% of the average LTL carrier’s revenue comes from these rates. Large accounts, and those who have contracted with a 3PL, are on a different set of rates. Those rates are customized to the SHIPPER’S need. Increases are controlled and costs are kept in line. Who will be looking out for you:
