4PL Pricing Trends

Gainsharing is currently the most adopted pricing model in the 4PL market as the pricing is based on the gains provided by the supplier. The model also facilitates enhanced problem solving, minimizes risk, and payments are based on measurable gains. However, SpendEdge expects the risk-reward pricing model to gain popularity in the coming years as it encourages innovation and enhances performance by assigning rewards based on these criteria.
