Upcoming Webinar: Understanding Today's Truckload Market—a Crucial Piece of the Transportation Budget Puzzle
Sep 3, 2019
As we have been highlighting in recent Two Minute Warnings, there are many pieces to building a great 2020 transportation budget!
In this week’s Two Minute Warning we address the importance of having the right strategy and focus in building your transportation budget. In our recent eBook about how to create a transportation spend management plan, we addressed how companies are reducing their freight costs and achieving significant savings by managing “from the inside out".
While managing from the inside out is very important, we’ve also heard from folks who have told us they are deep in to their budgeting process and really need to understand what to expect in the truckload market for 2020. And you need that information now! We’ve heard you loud and clear!
So we decided to take advantage of having one of the best networks in the business and let you hear from some of our friends who run large truckload carriers.
This Monday, September 9, at 11am CDT, CSCMP, NASSTRAC and TranzAct will be hosting our webinar: Understanding the Truckload Market – Looking At The Road Ahead In 2020.
If you have truckload freight, you need to be on this call. You will hear directly from:
Derek Leathers, CEO, Werner Enterprises
Jeff Rodgers, CEO, Universal Logistics
Thom Albrecht, CFO, Celadon Trucking
And for those of you who have missed our previous Two Minute Warnings that are focused on budgeting, we have addressed other parts of the transportation budgeting puzzle:
- Understanding the economy - Whenever you create a budget, you'll need to make assumptions about the economy. That's why we interviewed award-winning economist Gary Shilling about what he expects to happen in the next year and you can download his interview here if you haven't already.
- Dealing with surprises - In the transportation industry, we're often dealing with "wild cards" and you can learn more about managing these here.
- Getting an outside perspective on your plan - It's always good to get an opinion from an outsider who has experience in the industry and a different point of view. If you'd like to meet with us you can learn more or sign up here.
We provide all of this because we’re on your team, here to help and passionate about seeing you be successful. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 630-833-0890 or send us an email.
