Transportation Procurement is Not a Standalone Event: The Importance of Taking a Continuous Process Approach

  • What are the main components of the overall business process? Where should companies begin?
  • What are some factors that would trigger a sourcing event or help define its scope and objective?
  • How do you kick-off a sourcing engagement? What are the most important steps?
  • How do you take the output of a strategic sourcing engagement and successfully execute it?

  • How do you make sure that the goals and benefits defined at the outset are actually met?
