Direct-Recovery was founded in 2000 to target a market of shippers underserved by third party logistics firms. We developed a scalable platform to deliver enterprise level parcel audit services to large, decentralized shippers. We then packaged the same technology in a solution to serve smaller companies. “Smaller” back then meant companies with less than $500,000 per year in total FedEx or UPS spend & FedEx Refunds.
Cell Phone Cost Reduction

With our transportation background, we prefer to focus on that which we do best, rather than resell the services of another cost reduction company & FedEx Audit.

We have found savings of at least $30 and up to $69 per cellphone line per month in the accounts of our current clients, amounting in some cases to several hundred thousand dollars in annual savings. We achieve these cost reductions by restructuring cell phone plans, automating usage monitoring and modifying contracts to suit. We call it dynamic contract optimization, and it’s guaranteed to reduce your mobile spend & UPS Rate Negotiations.

If your company has over a hundred cellphones under contract, allow us to conduct a free analysis to show you exactly what and how we can save you. Even if you’ve just renegotiated your cell contract, and found substantial savings, we’ll find more…
