Start Hitting Your Supply Chain Goals
Spend Management Curbs Your Costs
Transportation savings cost are not a constant. MCG can reduce your shipping costs as a percentage of sales. But without management, initial cost savings soon fall prey to future rate increases. MCG's transportation spend management renegotiates your pricing, then maintains the savings over time, insulating you from both steady and unpredictable rises.
Lower Your Costs vs. Your Competition
MCG provides inside market intelligence and analytics, so you can compare existing carrier contracts to others in your industry, and have MCG negotiate better pricing.
Receive Bottom Line on Carrier Pricing
MCG's cost modeling technology uses best-in-class algorithms created by our data scientists, coupled with human data from industry experts to weigh your customer characteristics against carriers' cost to ship packages. We then use carriers' preferred margins and cost formulas to negotiate a better pricing agreement tailored to your needs.
Predict and Limit Increases
MCG projects what shipping should cost, so you can establish a spending baseline, and not only keep up with carrier rate increases but often prevent them. You have an investment manager that manages your growth profile. You need a transportation spend management company to maintain your savings profile.

When we were first introduced to MCG Logistics we were looking to save money on freight expenses. We liked the idea of leveraging MCG for their no cost benchmark analysis to either validate that our pricing was best in market or disprove this hypothesis and determine if there was additional cost savings to be had. We honestly did not think there was any way to further improve our already aggressive pricing platform. Within in eight weeks MCG was able to deliver further double digit rate reductions on all our parcel and international and domestic freight expenses.
