    The 2023 GRI: Numbers Do Lie

    The 2023 GRI: Numbers Do Lie

    Welcome to season two of the Tee Up: Logistics Insights podcast!


    In this episode Glenn Gooding, President of iDrive Logistics, and TJ Roberts, CRO of iDrive Logistics, discuss an issue weighing on every shipper's mind: the recently-put-in-place GRI. We are now far enough into 2023 for the impacts to be felt, and Glenn and TJ go over the history of the GRI and the best strategies to combat this year's. 

    The key takeaway? A 6.9% increase can equate to a much larger impact on your business, but you'll never have complete visibility without complete data.

    Improving Customer Experience with Shipping Protection

    Improving Customer Experience with Shipping Protection

    "It’s no secret that the pandemic brought with it a boom in e-commerce. Data is beginning to indicate that this trend is here to stay. Unfortunately, in the logistics industry, it's a reality that some packages will not reach customers issue-free.

    In this episode, Glen Gooding, President of iDrive Logistics, sits down with Eduardo Lopez-Soriano, Vice President of Marketing at UPS Capital. The two discuss the role shipping protection plays into creating strong, long-term relationships with customers. 

    Key Points: 
    86% SMBs are using drop shipping. Businesses utilizing drop shipping strategies see more shipping issues when compared to SMBs doing their own fulfillment.210 million packages were stolen off porches in 2021, equal to almost 1 package per household in the US.More than half of SMBs are using same-day carriers and are in-turn seeing higher incidences of damaged parcels.Follow iDrive Logistics and ShipCaddie on Social Media!

    Everything Shippers Need to Know About Carrier Agreement (Repeat)

    Everything Shippers Need to Know About Carrier Agreement (Repeat)

    Rebroadcast: In this episode originally published in December of 2021, Glenn Gooding and Jake Wertner sit down to discuss the nuances of carrier agreements and everything shippers need to know about them. Ranging from what a carrier agreement is to how to get one, listeners will come away with a deeper understanding of how their business should approach shipping. This episode is especially relevant in preparing for any shifts in transportation strategy after the end of peak season. Peak season can expose weaknesses in a shipper's distribution strategy, so we recommend approaching this time of year with an eye towards the data you can collect regarding package shipping and delivery. It may come in handy in terms of looking at any carrier agreements you currently have.
