Tracking inbound transportation comes with difficult operational and economical challenges and for that reason, it is not always of the highest priority in a company’s supply chain management. Regardless of the size of a company, it should devise a system to measure inbound shipments.
Don’t be fooled that “shipping is free” from your supplier. If you are not paying shipping and handling, then the costs are likely buried in the cost of the goods you are buying. While some suppliers increase shipping costs (without the receiver’s knowledge) to make a profit, most suppliers opt for bundling shipping prices into the receiver’s final quote. Ultimately, your supplier’s essential job is to create materials that benefit your business.
