Customer Success Story: Aggressive Courier Rates for Heavy Auto Parts

Posted by Tania

At FlagShip we love sharing success stories, here is how we helped a customer with aggressive courier rates for heavy auto parts.

Challenge

– An Auto Part Company located in Markham, Ontario frequently ships product to customers within Ontario and occasionally across Canada.

– Shipping auto parts can be extremely expensive due to the overall heavy weight of the shipment. Before a FlagShip sales representative contacted the Auto Part Company they were unaware of discount shipping options available to small businesses.

Solution

– Over the phone with the company, FlagShip’s sales representative quickly evaluated the company’s shipping needs and how discount shipping could significantly benefit their small business.

– FlagShip immediately quoted a shipment that consisted of three packages with a total weight of 90 lbs. The shipment was shipped within Ontario.

– Using FlagShip’s proprietary online shipping system– the sales representative was instantly able to compare shipping rates from UPS, Purolator and FedEx to identify the best discounted shipping rate of $88.  The Auto Part Company received a quote from a competitor with a rate of $135.

Results

– FlagShip saved the company 35% on shipping costs.

– The Auto Part Company is now a loyal customer of FlagShip.
