Selection of cost-effective, reliable freight carriers is becoming increasingly difficult
Retailers, brands and manufacturers are tasked with far more than merely sourcing the right product to offer the marketplace. These shippers must also manage complicated, often global, distribution networks fraught with scale and complexity. Further compounding the situation, shippers need reliable yet cost-effective transportation partners sourced from an increasingly constrained supply of drivers and equipment. While a daunting task, those shippers who can effectively manage freight services and expense across the distribution network are best positioned to compete for the consumer.
In supply-constrained marketplaces, building and supporting long-term mutually beneficial relationships is vital to success.
Service level performance is difficult to monitor and measure with standard, manual processes, and offline systems.
Capacity and preference is often granted to the partner with the easiest and quickest way to perform transactions.
Global inbound transportation networks are vastly more complicated with multiple service providers and activities.
