The logistics pricing analyst is among several roles added this year that mitigate freight rate variability.
April 12, 2018 (PALM HARBOR, Fla.) – FreightCenter, a leading third-party logistics provider, is proud to announce the addition of a pricing analyst position to its team of logistics specialists. The move further demonstrates FreightCenter’s commitment to provide accurate and timely responses to customer requests for freight rates.
The challenge of ensuring FreightCenter customers receive competitive rates, as well as superior concierge-like shipping services for small- and medium-sized businesses is evolving as customer needs and industry technologies change. Every single day, variables such as fuel costs, weather, or shipper volume impact trucking rates and capacity.
“We know affordability plays second only to quality,” said FreightCenter CEO Matthew J. Brosious. “At FreightCenter, we’re committed to proving our overall value to customers. The best way to do that is through a transparent process that includes studying customer needs and capacity trends. The pricing analyst fulfills that purpose.”
Billions of dollars are dependent on timely pricing decisions that rely on accurate and real-time information from carriers. In 2016, the American Trucking Association reports consumers spent more than $675 billion on trucking services, which was considerably short of the industry’s $726 billion record revenues in 2015. The pricing analyst provides market intelligence by reviewing and evaluating historical freight network contracts to uncover opportunities to optimize pricing.
In its 20th year, FreightCenter remains committed to helping businesses grow by simplifying their shipping of less-than-truckload, volume, truckload, and parcel shipments. The company is seeking applicants to fill several positions in customer service, IT/development, marketing, sales, and accounting.
