Through the USSA consortium, FMC has access to competitive rates by leveraging the member volumes and capabilities, best-in-class information technology and up-to-date information about the shipping industry. USSA provides FMC with a cost effective way to optimize its logistics spend.
I like the fact that USSA partnered with GT Nexus. With this tool I can always see exactly what my freight rates are.
Amcol International was looking for the ability to achieve the competitive rates that higher volume shippers are able to obtain. We found this with USSA. Through our membership we have not only achieved the improved rates, but we now have the ability to access a broader group of carriers, giving us security in our shipping options.
Through membership in the USSA we have gained more competitive rates and a reliable network of other exporters. Joining the USSA has been a positive experience with great results.
The ability to leverage ocean logistics services has been a very positive tool in reducing our overall spend, i.e. such as gaining exposure to various IT and systems solutions and ultimately entering into an IT solution (GT Nexus) at a significantly discounted cost. The ability to openly communicate and bench-marking of services/rates with a group of shippers is a very positive tool.
