Running on Empty: How Shippers and 3PLs Find Capacity in Today’s Market
Trucking capacity is tight, and there is no end in sight, at least according to one industry analyst who predicts the current supply and demand dynamics will not change — at least through the end of 2018.
What is it like for shippers looking for capacity in this environment? One major retailer describes it this way – it’s a dog fight every day.
And, as we move into the traditional peak sales cycles, the conversation is rapidly changing from a concern about higher freight rates to the very real challenge of getting capacity at all.
In this webinar, you will hear directly from shippers about real-world strategies they are using to find capacity and the technology behind those strategies.
Participants will learn:
- How to access capacity through multiple channels
- How to speed the process of procuring capacity
- How to balance a private fleet and carriers effectively
- How technology can be used to “create” capacity through supply chain optimization
