Adoption of technology saving aspects

Use of technologies such as GPS tracking, adoption of SaaS platforms, and use of image recognition software to track, process documentation, and evaluate costs can help to minimize moving costs.

Optimization of negotiation strategies saving aspects

Buyers can negotiate costs if they have high-volume of shifting in terms of number of goods to be shifted or number of employee's goods to be shifted. If goods need temporary warehousing during transit buyers can trigger negotiation. A systematic transition from a local sourcing strategy to a regional strategy may also lead to better negotiation opportunities.

Buyers prefer suppliers that can provide a right estimate in terms of resources to be used during the transit and provide the best quote possible during the planning phase itself.

Bundling of services saving aspects

One of the most opportunistic strategic cost saving levers in the global moving services market is the bundling of services and add-ons such as providing temporary residence at source or destination during the transit. International moves involve handling customs and migrations and suppliers should be well equipped to handle issues related to customs and migrations.

Buyers prefer service providers that can provide an end to end moving services, which includes value-added services such as assembly and disassembly of equipment.
