Frequently Asked Questions about Contract Negotiation Services.
How long will my contract with Cost Cutting Consultant last?
Contracts with Cost Cutting Consultant last three years.
Can I negotiate with UPS or FedEx on my own?
Yes, any company can negotiate with UPS or FedEx on their own. But these couriers expect this and often issue contracts most beneficial for the courier, not for their clients. These couriers do not expect their clients to have experienced knowledge about the courier’s negotiation tactics, data analytic skills regarding their prices and services, and an in-depth understanding of their contract’s language and fine print. Therefore, Contract Negotiation Services can provide the above level of expertise and make it possible for your company to negotiate the best possible rates.
Will Cost Cutting Consultant work with all my couriers?
Yes. Many clients have more than one courier, and Cost Cutting Consultant will provide the above mentioned services for each one.
What will I receive from my contract with Cost Cutting Consultant?
First, you will receive an initial analysis of your current courier’s contract and a report of potential savings that could be made after a contract revision. Next, you will receive a written “request for revised contract” to send to your current courier. Once your courier responds to this request, all further negotiations will also be written for you. Lastly, you will receive an Excel analysis of the courier’s new contract offer.
Cost Cutting Consultant bills me for a percentage of the savings I earn, but how will I know the amount of savings that I am earning?
Each month you will receive a detailed Excel spreadsheet outlining the savings you will be earning with your new courier contract.
