Courier Rates for Shipping Auto Parts - A FlagShip Case Study

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, FedEx, DHL, Canpar and GLS 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.
