About Us

Since 2003, we’ve provided our clients with a consultative-style approach that dramatically reduces transportation and supply chain expenses. Through our Audit, Business Intelligence, Optimization and TMS service offerings, we uncover unnecessary, hidden expenses and present our findings as unbiased, actionable data.

Long-standing industry experience, detailed negotiation capabilities, and our proprietary software suite, FreightOptics, enable us to assist our clients in reducing erroneous shipping charges, thereby improving the bottom line with minimal time involvement required.

We serve all modes, both domestic and international: Courier, Small Parcel, Less Than Truckload, Truckload, International Air and Ocean, and Ocean Contracts direct with Steamship Lines.


Our Team

Our team comes armed with many years of carrier and client-side experience in sales and operations. With this experience came the knowledge that most customers don’t have the time, technology or expertise to negotiate favorably with their carriers.

Zero Down puts an end to that disadvantage.

We are passionate about helping our clients achieve supply chain savings and efficiencies through our best-in-class auditing and optimization services, the latest in business intelligence and our cutting-edge transportation management system, all powered by FreightOptics’ leading technology.
