Freight management

Using dap UK to outsource their freight management in its entirety is an increasingly attractive proposition for our clients. Our unrivalled range of operational and administrative export services can immediately reduce many of the risks and costs associated with the movement of freight. We are also often able to help bring about an overall improvement in cash flow through the introduction of a simplified freight management system, involving:

  • The management of existing suppliers
  • Full financial risk review and assessment
  • Existing supplier cost reviews
  • Where beneficial, the appointment of alternative suppliers
  • The negotiation of freight rates valid for a specific period
  • The processing and payment of suppliers’ invoices and monthly invoicing
  • The production of monthly reports per customer, per shipment
