Since 2011, $302 billion of venture capital funding has been invested in supply chain technology, leading to advancements on a decades-old, fundamental logistics problem: matching loads to trucks. Obviously, there are benefits to increased supply chain visibility — fewer empty miles, increased driver retention, predictive analytics, as well as improved communication between shippers and carriers. But are these innovations sufficient to address the most mainstream issues facing the industry?
This webinar will address:
• The current status and future outlook of the transportation industry.
• How businesses can refine their supply chain strategies with their shipping partners.
• Innovative shipping programs that encompass all progressive transportation endeavors with a focus on reducing operating costs, fuel expenses and CO2 emissions, increasing capacity and utilization and creating more economic freight rates.
