automotive logisticsIn the Automotive Aftermarket industry one of the keys to success is implementing best practices in operations and utilizing technology, especially in the arena of Automotive Logistics. Those companies who are excellent in operations functions, such as freight management, enjoy an advantage over their competitors. One of the most cost effective ways to ship freight is via Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipping. However, with LTL Shipping, it requires proper management in order to realize the full benefits.

“95% of the business of Cerasis, a third party logistics company, is done through Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipments. In fact, our transportation management software, the Cerasis Rater, handled 300,000 LTL freight shipments in 2013, and we audited every single one of them,” said Audra Wiste, Customer Services Manager. “So it is of special interest for us to help educate shippers in the Automotive Aftermarket space with automotive logistics on all modes of possible ways to ship their freight in order for shippers to make the best decisions for their business.”

The 45 to 60 minute webinar will teach you how to better manage the process and the costs associated with shipping via LTL by covering the following material:

  • What is LTL Shipping (Less-Than-Truckload) and how did it come about?
  • The Benefits of Shipping via Less Than Truckload Freight
