Depot managers: improve negotiations with your subcontractors
For a parcel delivery depot manager, negotiating with transport subcontractors is often a very difficult task:
- “Does the negotiated price allow my subcontractor to be profitable?”
- “Am I paying too much for this subcontractor’s transportation services?”
- “How can I be sure I’m buying my transportation at the right price?”
- “Is my agency’s territory sectorization really optimal?”
