Shippers turn to Outside Transportation Management Solutions to Remain Competitive
In this the “Freight Project” Podcast episode, Roger and Cerasis’ Marketing Manager & “The Freight Project Podcast” host, Adam Robinson, will discuss what he hears on the front lines during sales discovery calls, what are the true challenges in the marketplace today & how the capacity crunch is really putting the pressure on shippers & carriers to remain profitable.
In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll hear:
- With the myriad of challenges & the fast-paced world of freight driven by mode changes, e-commerce, and the capacity crunch, shippers increasingly need to seek out solutions beyond their own current in-house resources
- Why there are still some shippers who still don’t use a TMS & what Roger says when he comes up against this objective in the sales process.
- How a TMS creates competitive advantage for shippers among several other benefits such as the ability to benchmark carriers, support multiple carrier options, and then use reporting to use data as a step off point to better collaborate with carriers.
- What steps smaller logistics companies can, and shippers for that matter, take to remain technologically competitive in a market dominated by large shippers and logistics companies.
We hope you enjoy this very first episode of The Freight project podcast!
