Local and Interstate Freight

Local and Interstate Freight Due to the size of Australia freight distribution can spread to every corner of country, meaning understanding the rules and charges associated to different areas of the country is critical for a cost effective freight solution.

Local and Interstate Freight is basically a term which describes the need to distribute product or materials not only to the local area or city, but potentially every state, town and suburb, which could mean the freight travels literally thousands of kilometres.

Each freight provider has individual strengths and weaknesses when it comes to a national requirement by a customer. For example one provider may have very low costs, to the local city, or major capitals, but is very expensive into remote areas and uses subcontractors for the majority of the deliveries.

An EFS solution ensures that customers recieve the optimum blend of providers delivering lowest cost options into major cities as well as remote country areas. Also the price is coupled with the service capabilities of the provider and the important of speed, traceability and damages to the customer.

Cost Benefits by using multiple Local and Interstate Freight Providers

The cost benefits associated to selecting the right mix of providers is huge. For example sending a single 20KG carton from Sydney to Perth could cost as much as $39 with the wrong providers or as little as $26 with the right provider. Sending freight with the wrong profile of provider in this example results in a difference of 50% greater costs, or an annual different of more than $30,000 for a customer spending only $100,000 per year on freight.

This type of cost saving can be achieved by Exalt as simply as selecting a more cost effective carrier mix, with exactly the same service levels and capability as each other.
