Shippers of all sizes face the same transportation challenges and opportunities, from finding capacity to controlling costs to meeting customer service level expectations. But many small and mid-sized shippers suffer from the mindset of, “I’m not Walmart” — that is, they assume that size and sophistication are necessary to achieve meaningful transportation costs savings. Although having a large transportation budget does help when negotiating transportation contracts and implementing systems, the reality is that shippers of all sizes can always develop and implement strategies that have a return on investment.
In this timely and informative episode, Jason Hubbard from enVista discusses five ways that small and mid-sized shippers (and large ones too) can reduce transportation costs and improve operational efficiency that go beyond leveraging the size of their freight spend.
