Managed Transportation Services: It’s About More than Simply Moving Freight 

Shippers are increasingly turning to Managed Transportation Services providers for help in managing the increasing complexity of their supply chains. In this second article in GlobalTranz’s and FreightWaves’ “High Tech, High Touch” series, Ross Spanier, SVP Sales & Solutions for GlobalTranz explains that there is more to a successful Managed Transportation Service partnership than simply moving freight.  

“It’s become a requirement that managed transportation providers go beyond transportation to take a more consultative approach,” he says. “Shippers are asking, ‘How can I leverage data and predictive analytics to anticipate market volatility, to inform my buying patterns, and streamline my warehouse operations?’ Only a provider with a truly consultative approach can help tackle those challenges.”

Getting a Tech Edge: How Managed Transportation Providers Offer Shippers an Advantage

As shippers struggle to manage the increasing complexity of their supply chains, many are turning to Managed Transportation Services (MTS) providers for help.  

In this article from FreightWaves.com, Ross Spanier, SVP Sales & solutions for GlobalTranz, shares his perspective on the benefits of partnering with a Managed Transportation Services provider, including access to cutting-edge technology, high-quality capacity, talented experts, and enhanced business intelligence.  

Perhaps most importantly, according to Spanier, is partnering with a provider that supports their technology and service offering with consultative, strategically-oriented team members. “Part of the value in the technology is the people supporting it,” he says. “Talent is something that [customers] look for; people that will learn their business and help them on a strategic level. That can be missed.”
