Who Chooses Freight Buyer or Supplier
I work for a large medical device manufacturer and we negotiate our freight rates with common carriers for national rates. I have asked one of our vendors to use our freight account, and he refuses saying that he is shipping the material FOB destination, and he wants to chose the way the material ships, but still bill me for the cost. I explained that we have negotiated rates, and want to use our own account, and still he can ship FOB destination.
He says that he has the legal right to chose how the material will ship. I have never heard of such a process. Can you please shed light on this topic for me? Thanks
