Shipping rates for cross-border Mexico loads are fluctuating for the same reasons we are experiencing in the U.S. – the ELD mandate, rising prices, chronic driver shortage and soaring consumer demand. One factor unique to cross-border trade that’s impacting the market is the extreme imbalance between southbound and northbound traffic. According to JOC.com, there are not enough southbound trailers to match rising northbound demand for trailer space.

Mexico is an enormous market for both imports and exports. USTR.gov notes that in 2017 “The U.S. imported $340.3 billion worth of goods from Mexico, and exports to Mexico totaled $276.2 billion,” making Mexico the United States’ third largest market for both imports and exports in 2017. Despite recent tariffs imposed on some goods, trade flow continues to be strong across the U.S.-Mexico border.

For cross-border shippers, the export-import landscape has become exceedingly complex. Here are 5 tips to better manage your costs and processes:

1. Provide Essential Information in Advance

Incomplete or incorrect paperwork is a common reason shipments get delayed at the border, and it’s very avoidable. When you provide all the information about your freight in advance to your logistics partner, they’re able to coordinate and prepare shipment documentation that must accompany every cross-border shipment. Make sure you provide your logistics partner with accurate shipping addresses, piece counts, pallet counts, details about the items being shipped and timelines.

2. Increase Lead Time

A 1,000-mile load going from state-to-state in the U.S. won’t have the same transit time when shipping into Mexico. Everything slows down at border crossings for routine customs clearance procedures. The more lead time your logistics partner has to book a shipment, the more leverage they have to secure the best carrier for your lane, identify efficiency improvements, negotiate rates and accommodate delivery timelines. If you have a critical northbound shipment, your logistics partners will need time to find the right carrier to handle it. Sometimes, this requires considerable deadhead, which inherently increases costs. In a capacity-constrained environment, information and time are great equalizers.

3. Hire a Good Customs Broker 

The carrier and 3PL will get your shipment to the border, and the customs broker will help you carry the ball over the goal line. Think of your customs broker as a CPA for freight. They prepare every shipment’s paperwork, so it complies with the export and import laws of U.S. and Mexico. If one form is out of place or you’re missing a signature, your freight could be delayed. Frequent communication with your customs broker is a must-have for smooth border crossing. Find a good customs broker and stick with them if they consistently provide excellent service.

4. Work with CTPAT Carriers and Partners

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched its Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program in 2001 in the aftermath of 9/11. According to the agency’s website, “CBP works with the trade community to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security.” CTPAT is a voluntary public-private sector partnership program for importers, carriers, consolidators, customs brokers and manufacturers. CTPAT members agree to work with CBP to “protect the supply chain, identify security gaps and implement specific security measures and best practices.”

The bottom line for shippers is when you hire companies that are in the government’s CTPAT program you lower your risk. CTPAT members are also less likely to be slowed down by CBP at U.S. entry points and will often experience shorter wait times at the border.

5. Use a Transportation Management System (TMS) for full Visibility

With so many moving parts in cross-border shipping, a TMS is critical to providing end-to-end visibility, tracking and connectivity among all parties involved. A TMS with predictive analytics and business intelligence capabilities will also enable you to use data to optimize your cross-border freight operations and identify opportunities for mode shift, consolidation and cost efficiencies.

Cut Through the Complexity and Hire Experienced Pros

There’s no doubt that cross-border shipping is a complicated business. By following our five tips here, you’ll reduce your risk and begin to optimize your processes. If you don’t have your core group of experts at your company to adequately handle logistics operations to and from Mexico, consider hiring a 3PL with significant experience in that part of the world.

Uber announced last week that it was shuttering its self-driving truck program, a development that had several industry experts questioning the future of the company’s digital freight brokerage app Uber Freight, which launched in 2017.

The Uber Freight app is modeled after the company’s ride-sharing app as a method to match truck drivers with available freight loads. Uber quickly discovered its simple model of driving people from point A to point B couldn’t be easily applied to the complexities of freight shipping, where nearly every load is unique. Applying technology to logistics management is critical, but the key to digitizing logistics is through TMS (transportation management system)-specific technology, which is developed around the nuances of freight, versus the Uber Freight app, which was developed based on moving people.

While Uber has since announced that Uber Freight is not going anywhere, challenges with its freight app have been chronicled by many business publications. Forbes recently reported that Uber announced a $1.1 billion fourth-quarter loss and showed signs of its ongoing struggles to build a robust carrier network, a critical element of its business model. Amid the losses, Uber Freight also discontinued its parcel package delivery service UberRush.

The Importance of Trusted Carriers

Forbes reported that one of the core problems Uber Freight faces is, “Many shippers and virtually all larger ones don’t want to do business with just any carrier.” At Uber Freight, carriers are required to have an active DOT / MC number, no conditional or unsatisfactory safety rating and proof of insurance. But these are minimal requirements.

Large shippers want to do business with a network of trusted carriers. A trusted carrier will have drivers with sterling safety records, likely more than the legal minimum insurance, and expertise in special areas—like HAZMAT or refrigerated shipping—and can be counted on to deliver reliably. “In short, freight movement is not like the Uber ride-hailing service where most customers are willing to accept a ride from almost any driver. Shippers need to be far choosier,” reports Forbes.

While the idea of managing freight via an app may seem attractive, shipping freight is far from simple. Freight brokering is a complex operation that involves many variables, where even small problems can quickly escalate, and cost shippers lost time and dollars to the bottom-line. It takes more than an app to successfully manage and navigate the complexities of logistics operations.

People, Processes & Technology = World-class Logistics Operations

Companies can build world-class logistics operations from the combination of three critical resources: people, processes and technology:

People

Processes

Technology

Use a transportation management system (TMS) with the following capabilities:

The inherent complexities of the logistics industry will continue to evolve, bringing both risk and opportunity to corporate supply chains. An app alone is not enough to build world-class logistics operations. The coalescence of people, processes and technology is the key to effective supply chain and logistics management that will create operational and competitive advantage for a business.

These days, you don’t need to have the logistics budget of a Fortune® 100 company to leverage leading-edge technologies that will improve the efficiency and performance of your company’s operations. Logistics technologies are being developed with the power of Oracle and Infor but without the price tags associated with these familiar business applications.

Nearly every company—large and small—has access to advanced enterprise technology that at one time was only accessible to the largest businesses. These are four major technologies that have become essential tools for mastering any company’s supply chain or logistics operations:

1. Configurable Business Process Management

Every day, logistics leaders execute hundreds of processes and activities within their freight operations, many of these, manually. Business process management technology leverages code-free tools to enable businesses to automate flexible freight processes. These configurable tools help companies more efficiently execute and track freight orders and control how carriers are managed and paid.

Speaking on the benefits of business process management technology for logistics operations, Andrew Haines, Senior Product Director for GlobalTranz’s Enterprise TMS said, “Leveraging business process management tools enable companies to decrease rebills through advanced matching and auditing, which ultimately leads to reduced freight costs.” Haines noted, “With increased automation, a result of utilizing business process management tools, companies can also enable employees to focus more time on new revenue-generating activities, instead of manual tasks.”

2. Business Rules Engines

All businesses have unique requirements and behaviors within their freight operations that impact accuracy, corporate goals, and customer service levels. Technology that’s capable of using business data and configurable business rules to automate decisions based on customer specific needs drives efficiency. For example, if a consignee’s terminal closes from 12–1 p.m. and does not accept pick-ups during this time, a TMS with a business rules engine can provide only the carriers that meet those specific delivery windows and standards when rating and procuring transportation. This leads to higher customer satisfaction and a significant decrease in rebills and retention fees, which ultimately saves in overall transportation costs.

3. Cloud Integration

An important component to process automation is integrating all critical business systems, like ERP (enterprise resource planning), WMS (warehouse management software), OMS (order management software) and shipper TMS (transportation management software), to gain full visibility and data exchange. An enterprise shipper and broker TMS will have pre-built integration adapters for the most common business applications, along with professional service teams that will assist with integration.

Integration platforms using a broad set of web service and EDI application programming interfaces (APIs) create a robust exchange of real-time information, as well as increase the speed and accuracy of purchase orders, acknowledgments and shipment updates.

For example, leading enterprise TMS solutions often integrate movement orders from a WMS or OMS and receive data on planned movements far in advance. This allows true managed transportation providers to lock in capacity ahead of actual shipment dates.

When you connect your systems, you gain full visibility into your supply chains through a control tower of combined vendor, customer and operational data. Ultimately, integration and automation helps businesses go-to-market faster and outpace the competition.

4. Predictive Analytics

Using big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics evaluates current and past data to make predictions. Through predictive analytics, companies can shift from reacting to events to proactive decision-making. In logistics, predictive analytics helps businesses manage disruptions (like weather), reduce downtime and effectively plan and budget logistics spend and operations.

In addition to dealing with disruptions, predictive analytics also helps companies manage freight spend and track financial forecasts. When you combine data points from manufacturing production and order processing with carrier capacity and performance, you’ll gain a better understanding of the ideal combination of carriers and services to meet your needs. With predictive analytics, you’ll discover answers to questions like “How many orders can we service within budget for a given set of lanes? or What will our freight spend look like in two to five years based on production goals?”

Leveraging Improvement and Optimization Technology

Fortunately for all of us in the logistics industry, you don’t need a Fortune 100-sized budget to use these emerging technologies. Instead, partner with a 3PL or TMS provider that offers a proprietary and configurable TMS leveraging these technologies. GlobalTranz’s TMS, GTZconnect, for example, arms companies of all sizes with business process management tools, business rules engines, integration tools and predictive analytics capabilities to help drive efficiency and cost savings into supply chains. And all at a price point that’s affordable for any company.

Today, ninety percent of Fortune 500® companies rely on 3PLs for outsourced logistics and supply chain services, according to an Armstrong & Associates report. Whether you’re a global enterprise or local manufacturer, how promptly and efficiently you react to customer orders has a direct bearing on customer loyalty, retention and earnings.

Rising complexity of freight management and technology-driven logistics has businesses of all sizes turning to 3PLs to help them drive efficiency, cost savings, and visibility into their supply chains.

A successful relationship with a 3PL comes down to choosing the right provider and creating a partnership. When you’re assessing potential logistics partners, it’s important to look beyond the questions like, “What lanes do you run? Where do you have the capacity and how many carriers do you have set up in your network?”

When you dig deeper, like looking closely at a company’s financials and operational structure, you learn more about how a 3PL or carrier will perform for you over the long haul.

How to Properly Vet 3PLs

To thoroughly vet the capabilities of a would-be logistics partner, break down your analysis into four key areas:

1. Operational structure and communications
2. Carrier relationships and interactions
3. Financial strength and insurance coverage
4. Technology capabilities

Operational Structure and Communications

Look for how the provider treats its customers. Can you contact them anytime with questions? Do they provide you with a broad team of experts that can easily handle all the transportation scenarios your company contends with?

Choose a company that’s big enough to move a large volume of freight, but nimble enough in operations where no customer is considered too small. Work with a company that can quickly scale service from local to national. It shouldn’t matter if you’re a first-time customer or long-term client, the right 3PL will help you find the best solutions for your specific logistics needs. Here are a few more points to consider:

Carrier Relationships and Interactions

When evaluating a 3PL’s carrier network, consider how it treats its carrier base.

And from the carrier’s perspective, how easy is the broker or 3PL to conduct business with? Is there great communication? Do they genuinely care about their carrier partners?

Financial Strength and Insurance Coverage

It’s important to select a stable 3PL with a solid financial track record of strong profitability and growth. Effective 3PLs must be financially sound to pay carriers quickly, invest in their own business operations, solutions and technology, and be in healthy financial position to take advantage of innovations that will both protect and advance your business. Use the following checklist to review a company’s financial strength closely, and check bank references:

To minimize the risk of disruptions, audit the 3PL’s various insurance coverages and operations to ensure they provide enough coverage to meet your minimum levels. Review and check-off the following items:

Technology Capabilities

Advanced application of technology throughout your supply chain helps a company become more efficient, increase productivity and gain a competitive advantage. Make sure the 3PL you choose provides a robust TMS with the following capabilities:

Check References

Finally, we encourage you to contact or call at least three customer references for each 3PL you’re considering. References help you validate a company’s range of service capabilities and provide you with insight into how a prospective 3PL performs over a span of years.
