Abstract
In most companies the major part of logistics costs are transport costs. Therefore, well conducted negotiations with service providers can lead to enormous cost reductions. But how can a transport purchaser know if his negotiated prices correspond to market prices and his competitors do not pay less for the same services? Tender responses of logistics suppliers may show different price levels but the decisive difference in freight prices is due to negotiating skills that can't be measured.
