The Statistics Report provides a line graph of your shipping profile using the aggregated parcel counts (for up to 3 years from the date of manifesting).
The report facilitates the detection of trends in shipping patterns, carrier performance and traffic flow. For example, you can use the report to:
Determine the average weight and size of parcel shipped to a trade lane during different periods. This information may then be used to go to tender or negotiate pricing for services based on typical shipping profiles.
Compare the results over named weekdays, months, and years, to identify growth trends and patterns in despatch volumes.
Use the trends and patterns in shipping volumes to:
plan internal resources for peak and trough periods;
identify when to introduce additional shipping services;
generate external forecasts for use in the negotiation of carrier contracts.
