Melba Express has been in business for over 40 years and we know that shipping and managing a supply chain is tough work. Finding the right logistics partners is also a difficult decision. At Melba Logistics and Consulting, we know everything the carriers and providers dont want you to know. We want to help you and your organization navigate the world of logistics so you can make the most educated decison when it comes time to selecting a carrier, transit time and price point.
Melba Logistics and Consulting is in the business of educating our customers on the ins-and-outs of shipping. We bring transparency to the pricing and we proactively train you and your team on why certain data fields are abolsutely critical to mitigating risk, as well as getting an accurate quote and ultimately, a true and correct invoice. We understand how critical it is for the quoted amount to match the final invoice so you're never left paying more than you should or thought you'd pay.
The simple fact of the matter is eCommerce has changed the game. The small parcel providers as well as the LTL carriers have changed everything about the way they ship and price their shipments. Dimensional weight is just one of the recent major overhauls in the shipping industry and there are more changes coming. The carriers and providers are always looking for ways to make more money on each and every shipment - Melba Logistics and Consulting is here to help our customers avoid spending more than they have to.
Some questions to consider: Are you getting the best possible discounts from your small parcel provider? Is there quoted price matching the invoiced amount? Are you charging your customers/vendors enough for shipping? Are the vendors and suppliers shipping into you using their shipping department as a profit center? Would lower costs and ultimately becoming a more educated shipper benefit your company and/or customers? Specific to LTL shipping, has your organization ever been billed for a "Reweigh"? Did the weight of the shipment go up on a shipment with a density based commodity? Have you ever been billed for a "Reclass"? Do you have a solid understanding of your NMFC and class? Melba Logistics and Consulting is very passionate and informed. We work tirelessly to help our customers save time and money when it comes to shipping.
