Corporate United has been in our new office for less than a year, making us all too familiar with some of the challenges that relocating your corporate office can bring. During the initial relocation planning it can be tough to focus on the positive outcomes that arise. For instance, at CU we outgrew our old space due to our ever-expanding team, which is cause for celebration! We were also given the opportunity through relocation to redesign our workspaces to be more functional and cohesive for collaboration, two big advantages.
Here at Corporate United, we are major advocates of not leaving money on the table when it comes to your indirect spend categories. Small parcel shipping is one category we see organizations leaving millions on the table, without even knowing it. But, we want to help you change that.
It’s no secret that two main carriers dominate the market when it comes to small parcel shipping – UPS and FedEx hold a significant chunk of the market combined. Each year, the carriers evaluate their shipping rates and make adjustments for the coming year. What typically happens is that one carrier will announce its increases, and the other follows shortly after with similar modifications.
An office relocation program and working with a GPO… You might find yourself wondering, “Is it worth it?” It can seem like a small area of spend for your businesses, in fact, it may feel like this offering doesn’t even apply to your organization. Or that the barriers you face while trying to get buy-in for change are insurmountable… So, should you even bother?
