Disrupting the Dominant Design of Transportation Procurement
Dr. Chris Caplice
For over 30 years, truckload transportation procurement has followed the dominant design of an Annual RFP to collect fixed contract rates that are fed into static Routing Guides. Recent experience and analysis shows that this two stage procurement process (Award and Tender) commonly fails and shippers have to spend additional effort to secure truckload capacity. This session discusses how shippers, carriers, and brokers can improve the transportation procurement and management process.
