The savings pays for it all
We receive outstanding reporting, great advise, professional expertise and in the end – the savings pays for it all! In 2009, our company saw its freight costs hit the 6 million dollar mark. When our senior management asked our Accounting group for a cost analysis and categorical breakdown of shipping mode costs by operating location, we quickly realized we had not maintained a practice of tracking that data in our systems nor did we have the means to quickly develop and implement the software to do so.
By chance, a co-worker had used Franklin Global at their previous employer and suggested they could assist with our issues.. The referral paid off and Franklin lived up to its reputation. Franklin’s representatives understand our concerns and were able to quickly implement a multi-layered strategy that exceeded our expectations. Not only were we able to obtain and categorize data – but we soon learned we could save tens of thousands of dollars by having Franklin Audit our Freight Bills and manage our International and Domestic Logistics. Today, Franklin is helping us gather mode, weight and cost data pertaining to our international shipping lanes in order to help us negotiate a Global Freight Forwarder contract. We could have never done this without Franklin’s expertise. Our management now sees the shipping details and has the ability to make educated decisions on carrier selection, shipping lanes, etc.

19 years and counting
We have been with Franklin for longer than I have been with my company – 19 years and counting. I can always count on them to accurately audit and pay our freight bills, which saves me a lot of time. Their recaps are timely and easy to go over. Lisa has been my rep for as long as I can remember and I can count on her to respond to any questions or requests very promptly. Lastly, Franklin offers a website that I can go to and look up all my freight costs and activities by, date range, carriers, cost, etc. This comes in very handy when I do my yearly budgeting.

Responsive to our needs and very knowledgeable
I would personally like to thank Franklin for being a great partner for our company. They have proven over the many years we have been associated with them to be dedicated to our needs. Franklin has been responsive to our needs and very knowledgeable when it comes to issues within the industry. I have had personal contact over the years with several people including their account manager for our account as well as others within their organization, and they have been helpful as well as courteous at all times. Their professionalism has certainly been a success for our company in the past and is expected to be in the future as well. Working with companies like Franklin can only help bring success to an organization.

Saved us quite a bit of money over the years
Our decision to start using Franklin was a good one. Our Payables Department used to spend an inordinate amount of time chasing down and paying freight bills. The time spent compiling and paying freight bills was so great that we never had time to actually check them to make sure they were correct.
Instead of hiring a full-time person just to deal with freight bills, we elected to outsource the job to Franklin. Their ability to find errors, correct them and obtain the necessary credits and refunds has saved us quite a bit of money over the years. The savings created by the errors they find more than offsets the cost of their service. What’s more. our labor savings just makes the whole decision that much better. If anyone ever asks how we handle freight bills we simply tell them that we have them sent directly to Franklin Global Logistics and they do the rest.
You really couldn't make it any easier.
