    Hi All,

    New to the group! Found old discussions but need current advice! Am paying $12 for 1kg, $16 for 3kg & nearly $19 for 5kg anywhere in Australia by Australian Air Express (now merged with Startrack) and increasing costs monthly! I am also using e-go for Road – Sydney to Melbourne or Sydney to Brisbane – although I worry about the ability to fin lost items!!

    I need to cut my freight costs as I am loosing business! Any ideas. I heard somewhere of Freight Resellers – offering cut price freight by reselling AAE, UPS etc.

    I spend about $40,000 per year (it is a seasonal business) so the bulk of that is over 3 months.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Thanks
    Ann

    Hi AnnC,

    I’m not the right person to help you with your query, but did want to welcome you to the Flying Solo forum :)

    I hope you receive some info that helps you get better prices soon.

    All the best,

    Have you tried negotiating with Australia Post? With the volumes that you have you should be able to get a good deal. The only other cheap option that I know of is e-go but you say that you are using them already.

    Hi Ann,

    I have just gone through the costing process with some of my clients. Australia Post would not negotiate even though freight costs were around $50K per year. Due to their location we were limited in who they could use – TNT ended up being the best option.

    Another company I have heard good reports about is http://www.inxpress.com.au
    They may be worth a shot?

    Good luck!
