A new year means new rates for shippers, and as we all should know, each and every company’s increase is different. Your organization’s actual costs will depend on a variety of factors. Join us for a live, interactive webinar on November 17, 2016 at 2 pm EST to learn how to mitigate these rate increases.

We’ll discuss:

  • What is different between 2016 and 2017 in terms of the announced rate change?
  • Historically, how were the rates announced?
  • What kinds of changes did we see, and how does this compare to what we are seeing for 2017? (Hint: It’s very different!)
  • What are the tools shippers have to manage these changes, including technology, regional parcel carriers, the USPS, and other options?
