Transpend Solutions

Inflation, inventory management, consumer spending, and a highly volatile supply chain environment are prevailing themes for shippers today. 

 

Companies can manage a tougher business climate by tracking shipping costs more closely and reducing costs.  After three years of enduring significant transportation rate increases, year-round peak season charges, and manipulations to fuel surcharge indices, shippers are finally regaining pricing leverage.

Transpend combines cutting-edge technology with industry expert knowledge to offer you all of the data, guidance, and strategies needed to quickly lower shipping costs.

Best of all, our talent and technology work in the background - with no disruption to your business. Our proprietary software evaluates your shipping billing records to audit for contract compliance and provide an actionable portrait of the health of your shipping spend. The resulting analysis, coupled with Transpend's experience and strategies, will provide a fundamental roadmap for reigning in expenses and increase profits.
