Good Question. This is always a different challenge to figure out if you are getting the most competitive pricing from transportation carriers and freight forwarders. The best option is to issue a transportation bid every six months to constantly evaluate your rates / costs. There are several good visibility platforms. Start by scheduling a No-Obligation Demonstration of Freightgate Logistics Cloud Solutions, please complete form at: http://www.freightgate.com/demo . they might no have exactly what you are looking for listed on their demo form however there have many tender / freight bidding solutions which can be adapted easily for your use.

I agree to Nick, the costing or pricing varies every year or every month. I also agree that you need to evaluate your rates or costing so that you can know the alignment of your transportation cost. Container transport etc. costing are not the same every year or by months especially when an incident in the industry happens. You can also review your distribution network so that you can know and optimize your costings also it will depend on the demand.
