Freight rate negotiation tool
Xact Negotiator © 2002 is proprietary software developed by Trans-Solutions to determine specifically how a carrier’s proposal affects a shipper financially. It operates much like the model used by carriers to determine a shipper’s freight rates. Analyzing your freight like a carrier gives you a negotiating advantage. Xact Negotiator © 2002 avoids use of averages or aggregates when analyzing carrier proposals because this calculation shortcut can create a false read. For instance, a 10% rate discount doesn’t necessarily reduce the freight bill by 10%, as many shippers assume. Accessorial charges, minimum charge thresholds and other factors may eliminate or offset the discount. Xact Negotiator factors in these critical details to deliver an accurate result.
