Transportation represents the largest element of most firms' supply chain logistics cost. Accordingly, supply chain leaders have prioritized managing this cost for decades. In many cases, this cost focus drove a commoditization of much of the transportation carrier market.
In 2018, transportation capacity and cost emerged as one of the biggest challenges supply chain professionals face today.
Shippers and carriers are asking the question, “Are these issues structural or cyclical in nature?” Both carriers and shippers need answers in order to effectively serve stakeholders.
At the summit, we will explore multiple views and practical solutions based on the experience of:
•Companies supplying transportation services and expanding their capacity
•Companies buying those services while protecting service and cost
•Companies supplying technology solutions to both shippers and carriers
•Professionals conducting research and analysis on industry trends and outcomes
Hosted by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the Haslam School of Business at the University of Tennessee (UT), this exclusive one-day transportation summit will bring together industry leaders from some of the most recognized companies in the world today to focus on today's transportation issues like driver shortages and increasing costs, while simultaneously discussing solutions and preparing for the future of transportation in the supply chain.
