The Most Experience.Leading-Edge Technology. Proactive Account Management.
They all add up to a whole new kind of inbound freight management model—one where you get to choose your carriers, select your rates and manage your costs.
And did we mention the savings?
Custom solutions and transparent pricing are just a few of the ways we're saving our customers money and changing the game to make freight management for hospitals, universities and research institutions smarter, easier, better.
One-Size Shipping Does Not Fit All.
Our completely customized solutions are tailored to you, and you alone.
Choose your carrier. Choose your rates.
If you're not working with us, there's a good chance you're paying too much for your inbound shipping. Unlike other freight management companies who work exclusively with one carrier, VPL works with all of the major carriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL and more), finds the best rates for you, and then allows you to manage your own carrier contracts to control your costs and receive any earned volume discounts. And when it's time to renew your carrier contracts, we can arm you with the insight you need to win at the negotiating table.
You manage costs; we manage compliance.
While you focus on what you do best, we do the behind-the-scenes work of ensuring your vendors are doing what they said they would. We use advanced data analytics to analyze freight for additional savings, identify and correct any missteps to guarantee that your inbound shipping always goes exactly as planned, and do it all in a way that is completely transparent to both your buyers and your internal customers. You just keep ordering and shipping the same way you always have, and we'll ensure your freight program produces savings every day.
Our invoices make sense (to you and your system).
If you're a hospital, university or research institution, you have hundreds and maybe thousands of shipments arriving daily. The last thing you need is an invoice that's impossible to understand and too cumbersome to manage. VPL's proprietary system loads your A/P system with accurate freight charges allocated to your specified budgets, departments, cost centers and account codes, with no human intervention required. And with real-time, drill-down, and interactive web-based reporting, every dollar is accounted for quickly, simply and effectively.
More Volume. More Savings. Guaranteed.
When you switch from your current freight management program to VPL, we drive an average of 24% more managed volume, which means more savings for you. We are so sure of our ability to save you money, we have the best guarantee of incremental savings in the market. It's rare that we don't hit the mark (or even exceed it), but if we don't, we'll write you a check for the difference.
Switching is Simple.
Maintaining the status quo and staying put with your current provider might seem easier but you have a lot more to lose when you stay put. We have conversion down to a science and your dedicated conversion specialist will remove all of the guesswork, having you up, running and saving more in just one day. It's so effortless you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner. And best of all, thanks to the additional savings, your conversion ROI can be measured in days.
