Thousands of logistics and operations pros love Sifted

Our high shipping volumes can easily drive millions of dollars in surcharges. And in some cases, the surcharges are warranted but in others they’re simply mistakes. With Sifted, we know the difference between the two and can do something about them. We’re having smarter conversations about where to prioritize and apply resources.”

Easiest savings we ever found. Sifted set us up and the audit was running. The ‘hard savings’ are nice, but we see the bigger opportunity in the ‘soft’ savings. Sifted has helped us move toward our continuous cost and process improvement goals with real savings and great tools.

The initial setup was very, very simple. It resulted in free money that we were not getting otherwise, so it’s definitely worthwhile. Ultimately, that experience and satisfaction with Sifted were what kept us around for the additional offerings.”
