Is your management team trying to finalise future purchasing decisions? Forecasting for transportation costs has many variables which may impact the costs of your goods by 10 – 20%. Estimates are based on rates that often change month-by-month. Even with “lock-in” contracts, there are many new surcharges that will lead to an increase in the rate you’ll pay.
