Results from Logistics Management's 23rd Annual Study of Logistics and Transportation Trends suggest that carriers, driven by a need to maximize profitability, are at a polar opposite with shippers who are focused on reducing their costs.
How can carriers and shippers collaborate to put an end to transportation’s tug of war?
LM's research team reports that this gap between shippers and carriers represents a zone of opportunity to change the current tug of war. Instead of pulling against each other, our team suggest, carriers and shippers must work on those areas that will result in lower operating costs for the carrier, while providing better service to end customers.
During Logistics Management's webcast on Thursday, 2:00-3:00 PM ET, September 25, an expert panel will reveal all of the findings from this Annual Study, including:
- Critical steps carriers and shippers need to take to put an end to the struggle
- The percentage of freight dollars currently spent by mode over the past 12 months
- What the next era of transportation management will look like/act like
