Are You A Tactical or Strategic Shipper? Sign up For TranzAct’s Upcoming Webinar: How to Navigate the Transportation Perfect Storm
Mar 21, 2018
As the first quarter comes to a close, we're seeing articles and hearing from companies about how rising transportation costs are hurting bottom lines. In this Two Minute Warning, we’re addressing the question: “Are you a tactical or a strategic shipper?” Why is this important? Because in this freight environment, where capacity is extremely tight, tactical shippers may well be paying an additional 8% to 10% - or more - to move their freight.
To help transportation and logistics professionals gain a competitive advantage in this challenging environment, we’re hosting a webinar in conjunction with NASSTRAC about how you can become a strategic shipper and lower the rate increases your company could be facing. We invite you to join us for this webinar on Wednesday March 28 at 11AM CDT.
Another resource we recommend in the meantime is the keynote speech Derek Leathers, the CEO of Werner Enterprises, provided at the NIT League Summit this February, where he shares a carrier’s perspective of the current issues and the difference in how Werner views transactional versus strategic shippers.
We provide these resources because we’re on your team, we’re here to help, and we’re passionate about seeing you be successful. If you have any questions or would like any individual advice, please give us a call at 630-833-0890 or send us an email.
