Research shows fuel and freight make up 63 percent of logistics costs. Don’t be at the mercy of the market, reacting to changes in fuel prices and freight capacity. Instead, take control of this large spend and proactively manage cost and effectiveness with continuous improvement initiatives.

The key to a more sophisticated supply chain strategy can be found in your transportation data. But first, you need the right partner to help you uncover opportunities by bringing transparency and accuracy into the equation.

The Current Process is Broken

Most shippers and carriers will tell you that the annual full network RFP is an inefficient system to establish rates and capacity requirements. This common practice often takes months of preparation, involving distorted data and the painstaking process of soliciting rates from imperfect carrier sets.

After all that work, a shipper’s initial transportation strategy can quickly fall apart. Market dynamics shift, needs evolve, and carriers’ networks change. All this adds cost and inefficiency to the supply chain.
